Drivers are experiencing heavy delays on the A47 this evening as a damaged car is blocking one of the lanes.
Police have been on scene since around 5.30pm to marshal eastbound traffic between the Thickthorn Roundabout and the junction with the A140, just outside of Norwich.
The inside lane has been blocked off by the damaged car, leaving only one lane open at a busy time for people heading in and out of the city.

The outside lane remains open to cars, but due to the amount of traffic drivers are being warned to expect delays of around 20 minutes until the care is recovered and the blocked lane can reopen.
South Norfolk Police confirmed that they have called for recovery, and that traffic remains heavy in the area.
Both lanes in the westbound direction remain open and unaffected by the broken down vehicle.
