One lane of the A11 was closed after a car rolled into a ditch close to the junction with the A47 at the Thickthorn roundabout.

Police said they were called to the scene at 1.05pm on Friday to reports of a car having left the road.

The car was travelling along the northbound carriageway towards Norwich when it left the road and rolled into a ditch.

There were no reported injuries, though the man driving the car was taken to hospital as a precaution.

An ambulance service spokesperson said: “We were called shortly after 1pm with reports of an injured man. Two ambulances were on scene.

“We transported the patient to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for further care.”

With little traffic on the roads amid the coronavirus lockdown, there were no severe delays or queues caused by the accident.

All lanes are now open as of 3pm.
