Police breath-tested the Duke of Edinburgh - and the driver of another vehicle - following a crash near the Sandringham Estate this afternoon.

A statement from Norfolk Police confirmed both drivers provided negative readings.

A spokesman said it was "force policy" to breath test drivers involved in collisions.

The crash - involving Prince Philip's Landrover and a Kia - took place on the A149 at Babingley, near Sandringham, just before 3pm on Thursday 17 January.

The Duke was uninjured. The female driver of the Kia suffered cuts while a female passenger had an arm injury. Both were treated at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn and have since been discharged.
