Cromer Road was closed in both directions near Norwich Airport earlier today following a car fire.

Emergency services were called to the scene at 11.30am close to the Wrights Mazda car dealership after a BMW X5 caught fire.

One fire appliance from Sprowston attended and used hose reel jets to extinguish the fire.

It is believed the fire was due to an electrical fault and was not started deliberately.
