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.

Police said it started with a call out at 6.35pm to a broken down vehicle on the Acle Straight.

As traffic began to queue up heading towards Great Yarmouth, four cars were involved in a crash, with one falling into a ditch.

The ambulance service was called to the scene shortly after 7.15pm and treated five patients.

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

Four more patients with minor injuries were assessed at the scene, but did not require transport to hospital.
