Konectbus reported a delay to its number four service from Norwich to Swanton Morley, which runs via Swanton Morley Surgery for passengers receiving their covid vaccinations.

It was caused by a cattle lorry on a narrow section of Mattishall Road in East Tuddenham.

A spokesperson from Konectbus said: "The 10.15am from Norwich is currently 15 minutes delayed at East Tuddenham unable to pass a cattle lorry loading on a narrow section of road.

"A relief bus will operate the section of route from Dereham to Swanton Morley at 11.23."
