A sinkhole which opened up on a Norwich road on Thursday is expected to continue to cause disruption over the weekend while repairs are carried out.

Angel Road in the north of the city was closed after the hole appeared in the street, causing a lorry to get stuck.

Repairs got under way on Friday after staff from Norwich City Council and Anglian Water investigated the issue, but the situation is not expected to be resolved until Monday, December 9.

"We are sorry for any inconvenience."

A spokesperson for the Angel Road schools said on Thursday that safety had not been impacted by the sinkhole.
