A broken down car is causing early morning delays on one of the region's busiest roads.

At around 6.30am, police were alerted to the fact a Vauxhall had broken down on the A47 near Hethersett, close to the Thickthorn roundabout.

Heavy tailbacks are building on the eastbound carriageway as a result, with police attending to ensure the scene is safe.

Police say the driver was able to pull onto the verge before breaking down, but that traffic was still building.

Further along the same road, but on the westbound carriageway, another broken down vehicle is causing delays in the opposite direction.
