The road is expected to be closed “for some time”, a Norfolk Police spokeswoman added.

An East of England Ambulance Service spokeswoman said they sent one ambulance, a rapid response vehicle, an ambulance officer vehicle and a critical response car to the scene.

A man was taken to Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital for further care.

Meanwhile, Lynx bus has said that “until further notice”, it will not be able to serve Highgate Infant School, KES or Gaywood Tesco on its services.

“This is due to the road being closed following an accident,” a post on social media said.
