The accident blocked the road near the Sporle turn-off shortly after 11.30am.

Fire appliances from Swaffham, Watton, Dereham and King’s Lynn, the environmental protection unit from Sprowston, and the water carrier from Fakenham attended the scene.

A spokesman for the Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service said the response was precautionary due to the nature of the vehicle and its load – but no fuel spillage or serious injuries resulted.

The tanker has partially blocked the road in both directions while awaiting recovery.
