A road is now clear following a crash between a car and a lorry on the A47 which caused rush hour disruption in Norwich.
The crash, between a Mercedes car and a lorry, happened at Thickthorn on Tuesday (February 5) afternoon less than half a mile from a pile up involving half a dozen cars on the A47 yesterday (Monday, February 4) evening which caused traffic to come to a standstill.
A spokesman in the Norfolk Police control room said there were no injuries following the incident which happened just before 6pm near to the lights at Thickthorn.
He said the car was stuck on the A11 while the lorry had been on the roundabout heading towards Hethersett.
There was some wreckage in the carriageway following the incident but that has been cleared.
The lorry was off the road but police were awaiting recovery of the car.
However the road was all clear by 7pm.
The crash resulted in significant traffic disruption, including on bus routes with Konectbus tweeting that there was disruption to route 8/6/X6/50/50A/5A due to the incident at Thickthorn and traffic being diverted on to Newmarket Road.
Norwich Park and Ride also said the incident caused disruption to route 501 with traffic having to divert down Newmarket Road.
