Police have said the A47 between Acle and Great Yarmouth has reopened following a crash involving four vehicles.
The accident took place between the Branch Road junction and the A12, causing delays along the A47 last night.

A man in his 60s, who had breathing difficulties, was taken to the James Paget University Hospital.
