A1066 due to reopen after tractor and car fire near Garboldisham
A major road between Diss and Thetford is expected to reopen tomorrow morning following a collision between a tractor and a car.
Both vehicles caught fire after the accident, which took place on the A1066, at Gasthorpe, near Garboldisham, on Tuesday at about 11.30am.
Diversions have been in place since the collision while repairs to the road's surface take place. Further work will also be carried out tomorrow using four-way temporary traffic lights at the Gasthorpe crossroads, which are due to remain in place until Friday.
Fire crews from Diss and Thetford were called to the scene and used foam to extinguish the flames.
A police spokesman said the tractor was pulling a trailor and the accident resulted in grain and oil spilling into the carriageway.
