The A47 has reopened after a collision involving three vehicles meant traffic was queuing in both directions.

Emergency services were called around 5.52pm to the collision which took place between Swaffham and Narborough. 

One person sustained minor injuries which did not require hospital transportation, while the road was reopened around 8pm. 

The accident took place near the Swaffham Road junction involving a Vauxhall Insignia, Citroen van and Volvo Estate.

Traffic was queuing in both directions as one lane remained open.
