Broken down lorry causes long delays on A47 in Norfolk

There were long delays on the A47 in Norfolk this morning because of a broken down lorry.

The lorry broke down near to the Sandy Lane junction, close to East Tuddenham, between Norwich and Dereham, just before 9am.

This caused heavy congestion, with police cordoning off the lorry and directing traffic while the A47 was down to a single lane.

The lorry was unable to be repaired at the scene and was initially expected to be recovered by around 10.30am.

However, the traffic congestion continued through until 11.50am, when the lorry was finally recovered.
