At around 11.50am on Sunday (February 2) morning, police received reports of a collision on the A11 southbound at Thetford, near the A134 Brandon Road roundabout.

At least two cars are thought to have been involved, one of which overturned and ended up in woodland beside the road.

Officers from Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team were at the scene and one lane was closed.

Traffic in the area was slow for more than an hour, with lengthy tailbacks extending several hundred metres back towards Norwich.
