The A47 has reopened after a broken down lorry blocked the road during one of the busiest times of the day.

Norfolk Police tweeted: 'A47 j/w A140 Harford Bridges @NSRAPT on scene with @Norfolkfire with a broken down lorry blocking lane one west bound. #norfolkroads'

The force later tweeted that the road had reopened and thanked drivers for their patience.
