The A47 near Colney has re-opened, after being shut for just over an hour, while police went to the aid of a person in distress.

Police from South Norfolk had been called to the A47 at Colney, close to the junction with the B1108 Watton Road, at just before 6.30am today (Wednesday, April 24).

The road had been closed in both directions near the bridge over the A47 and drivers had been urged to use alternative routes.

Norfolk police had said drivers should expect delays while they dealt with the situation, with traffic being diverted via a slip road.

At just after 7.45am police said that the road had been re-opened in both directions.

A woman has been detained under the mental health act.

The incident caused disruption to services on Konectbus's 3,4,8 and 9 routes, while the 510/511 Norwich Park and Ride services have also been affected.
