Three people suffered minor injuries after a car hit a tree when a driver swerved to avoid a deer.

The vehicle was travelling on the A1075 from Watton towards Thetford when the crash happened on a right hand bend at the Great Hockham turn-off at about 9.50pm on Saturday.

Two fire crews were called to the scene and had to cut the roof off the car to free the three people who had been trapped. The firefighters were at the scene for about two hours.

Police said the injuries were minor.
