A 40-tonne boat is set to cause delays on some of Norfolk's busiest roads as it is transported through the county.

Police will escort the 65-foot abnormal load as it travels on the A47 and A11 before being delivered to the Norfolk Broads.

The boat is being transported from Dorset to Oyster Yachts in Hoveton.

The 16-foot-wide unit will be escorted by Norfolk Police from the A14 at the Cambridgeshire border, then joining the A11, A47, A1064, B1152, A149 and the A1151 before taking local roads to the site.

The convoy made up of the vehicle transporting the boat and one self-escort vehicle will hit the roads at 11am on Wednesday.

Drivers travelling on any of the roads at this time have been told to expect delays and allow extra time for journeys.
