Two tankers collided on the A47 in Norfolk today, causing an oil spill.

Three fire crews attended the scene of the crash, which happened at about 7.20am today on the A47 at North Burlingham.

Firefighters used cutting equipment to free one of the drivers who was trapped.

The area was made safe by experts on site after a small leak emerged from one of the tankers. The tankers contained Kerosene and sugar beet.

The road was closed as 30 to 40 litres of oil had also spread across the road. Emergency crews remained on the scene for several hours until the vehicles were recovered.
