A stretch of the A47 was closed for a spell this morning after a roundabout was blocked by a broken-down heavy goods vehicle.
Police cordoned off the Elm Hall roundabout at Wisbech after an HGV broke down on it earlier this morning.
As a result, the King's Lynn bound carriageway of the road was closed to traffic, while officers awaited recovery of the broken down vehicle.
Traffic build-up in the area was heavy as a result and police advised motorists to find alternative routes.
As of shortly after 10am the road had re-opened.
