The A47 Acle straight ground to a halt on Tuesday evening because of a horse invasion.

15 escaped horses ran onto the busy road between Norwich and Great Yarmouth, causing police to close it in both directions.

Police said they escaped from a field near Vauxhall Holiday Park on the edge of Yarmouth.

Stranded drivers and passengers have reacted with a mixture of frustration and bemusement, with many taking photographs of the bizarre scene.

The horses were eventually captured and placed in a field two miles away.
