Police and fire crews are currently on the scene at Blofield after the tree fell onto the road a little before 9.30am.

Both lanes in the westbound direction are closed with drivers asked to avoid the area.

It comes after another tree fell onto the A148 at Aylmerton, near Cromer, blocking the eastbound carriageway.
