Norfolk Police have warned drivers that an abnormal load could cause delays as it is transported through the county this week.

The boat, measuring 5.4m wide and 27.4m long, will be transported with a police escort from Ashmanhaugh to Hoveton on Thursday morning.

The 5m tall load will leave Ashmanhaugh at 11am and will travel on Rector Road, School Road, A1151, Horning Road West and Tunstead Road before taking local roads to the site.

Police have warned drivers to expect delays on these routes.
