Motorists faced long delays following a crash near Dereham which closed part of the A47 this morning.

Highways England said the road was closed in both directions between Longwater, west of Norwich, and the B1146 at Dereham, and police put diversions in place.

The crash, believed to have involved a single vehicle between Tavern Lane and Draytonhall Lane, was reported around 7.30am on Sunday (September 29).

A spokesman from Highways England said at the time: "The A47 in Dereham is currently closed in both directions between the B1146 and the A1075 Longwater interchange.

"Norfolk police are responding to a serious collision and the closure is required to allow them to work at the scene. Due to the seriousness of the incident, the closure is expected to remain in place well into the morning."
