The accident happened yesterday evening (Thursday) on the A1075 near Wayland Prison at Griston.

Police closed the road at 7.30pm while heavy recovery vehicles were used to clear the road, which reopened just before 1am today (Friday).

A Norfolk police spokesman said: “A vehicle towing a trailer carrying agricultural plant on the back has blown a tyre and gone off the road and down into a ditch. The driver was not injured but it is a major obstruction to traffic.”
