The crash happened in Barn Road, at the bottom of Grapes Hill, happened just after 9.30pm on Friday. It involved a Fiat 500 and a police vehicle.

The police car, a Ford Focus, was responding to an emergency call at the time. The female driver of the police car and the female driver of the Fiat both sustained minor injuries and were taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for treatment. No-one else was hurt or involved in the crash, which left the police car on its side in St Benedicts Street, which was taped off while the vehicles were recovered.

Firefighters from Carrow, Sprowston and Earlham went to the crash and helped to make the scene safe.

Officers would like to hear from anyone who believes they may have witnessed the incident. Witnesses are asked to contact Norfolk Constabulary on 101. In December last year, a police van on an emergency call was involved in a crash with a taxi on the A140 Boundary Road.

Nobody was seriously injured but the road was shut for several hours, leaving motorists facing lengthy delays and diversions.

The police vehicle, a Ford Transit Connect, was responding to an emergency call at the time, involving another unrelated road traffic crash.
