The A11 has reopened after it was closed due to a crash.

Emergency services were called to a crash on the Norwich bound carriageway near Ketteringham, between Wymondham and the Thickthorn roundabout shortly after 12.30pm today (Saturday, December 28).

Fire crews responded to reports that two vehicles had been involved in a crash.

Firefighters from Hethersett, Earlham and Thetford attended.

They provided casualty care and made the scene safe, using granules to soak up a spill in the road.

One vehicle had gone into a ditch, while another was straddling both carriageways.

Norfolk police initially tweeted: "Road is blocked due to a road traffic collision... if possible avoid area."

And South Norfolk police tweeted a picture of firefighters at the scene, adding: "Please take alternative route."

Shortly before 1.30pm officers tweeted to say the road had partially reopened and asked motorists to "please pass the RTC slowly".

As of just before 3pm, traffic was still slow, with recovery of the vehicles awaited.

It is not thought that anybody was seriously injured, but the East of England Ambulance Service was checking casualties.

Bus services, including services run by Konectbus and First, were affected by the delays.

The road was fully reopened as of 3.50pm.
