The A47 Acle Straight has now re-opened in both directions following a crash this morning.

The road was closed on Sunday morning because of a car crash at about 7.45am from the Branch Road junction near Acle to the Vauxhall Roundabout in Great Yarmouth.

Fire engines from Yarmouth, Gorleston, Acle and Carrow stations were sent to the scene, along with a rescue boat.

A car was recovered from a ditch and fire crews helped one person who was then treated by paramedics for minor injuries.
