A road in Norwich has reopened after being closed for nearly two hours following police concern for the welfare of a man.

The incident began shortly before 8pm this evening, prompting officers from Norfolk Police to close the road in both directions.

Witnesses said officers from both Norfolk Fire and Rescue and East of England Ambulance Service Trust were also at the scene.

Traffic was halted and drivers were urged to seek alternative routes.

The situation was resolved at around 9.45pm, after which the road reopened and traffic flowed normally.
