A driver has been stopped by police after using a phone on the A47 while travelling with their four-year-old child.

Officers caught the driver on the A47 near Brundall on Saturday.

In a tweet, Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team said: "#A47 Brundall - Vehicle stopped as driver was on phone with their 4 year old in car. #BePhoneSmart #Fatal4 #NotWorthTheRisk We can't be everywhere but we can be somewhere #RCRT 142/7007."
