The A11 has reopened in both directions following a crash which saw it partially closed for almost 10 hours.
The crash happened in the carriageway heading towards Norwich, but police closed the road in both directions to allow the East of England Air Ambulance to land.
Police warned at the time the road was likely to be closed for the foreseeable future, but the northbound carriageway reopened at around 4.30pm.
The southbound carriageway, though, remained closed until just after 12.45am on Monday morning, according to Highways England.
A Norfolk police spokesperson said “multiple” people had suffered injuries in the crash, including one man who was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital via air ambulance with “significant and life-threatening injuries”.
