Oh dear what can the matter be, this poor motorist got stuck and was cut free

IT could, of course, happen to anyone but how it happened to a woman motorist last night after her Kia got stuck at this historic monument is still under investigation.

The woman, in her 40s, was taken to hospital after her car ended up wedged in the South Gates entrance to Kings Lynn. It blocked the road for an hour

Police believe the car was in collision with a DAF truck and spun into the arch.

It became wedged in the gateway and blocked the main road into town for more than an hour.

A police spokesman said the car was removed at around 8pm.
