Emergency services were quick on the scene following the incident in Norwich Road near the junction with Ramnoth Road.

A police spokesman said part of Norwich Road was closed whilst the vehicle was recovered. The driver escaped unhurt.

On social media two motorists driving along the road at the same time shared their thoughts.

One wrote: “I was in the car behind - He was driving down the road, moved into the middle as a car was parked but then must have lost concentration.
