The crash happened around 12.45pm Tuesday (February 26) on the A11 at Attleborough, near Breckland Lodge, when a lorry hit two stationary vehicles.

Emergency services are on scene and police said the southbound carriageway between the Queens Road junction and the Stag roundabout was likely to be closed for some time.

Claire Burgess from Attleborough was driving home from Norwich via the A11 and said she had been stuck in traffic for more than 90 minutes.

She said: “The road into Attleborough that runs parallel to the A11 looks grid locked. I’ve been stuck in traffic since I left Rouen Road in Norwich at 1.20pm and it is now 3.10pm.”

Katie Gaskell lives on the junction between Queen’s Road and the A11 Attleborough Bypass and said traffic had not moved on the road for an hour.

She said: “It’s a nightmare, traffic is backed up from Attleborough town centre to the bottom of Queens Road, which is grid locked in both directions. Everyone is beeping at everyone to move.”

The A11 northbound carriageway has been reopened.

Breckland Police tweeted: “We are attending reports of an RTC on the A11 in the vicinity of the Stag Roundabout, Attleborough. Please try to avoid the area at this time. We will keep you updated.”

Eye witnesses said traffic was being diverted through Attleborough.
