The A149 had been closed for several hours following a crash at a north Norfolk village.

There were reports of heavy traffic on the A149 in Thorpe Market after the road had to be closed following a collision on Saturday afternoon.

A fire service spokesman said a crew from North Walsham attended the scene at around 4.09pm to extinguish a car fire. He said the collision happened close to the Gunton Arms pub.

The road remained closed from Church Road to Elderton Lane, near St Mary’s Church, while recovery were on the scene. It reopened just before 9pm - nearly five hours after the crash was first reported.
