A road has re-opened after a car and lorry collided on a sharp corner which forced it to close.

Church Lane, between Lowestoft and Hopton, was closed after two vehicles collided shortly after 10.30am.

No one has been injured, but the road was closed and busses were delayed and forced onto alternative routes from 10.30am until 2pm.

One of the first people to arrive at the scene of the collision said: "The front of the car was caved in on the drivers side.

"I didn't see the accident but our bus was the first vehicle on the scene."
