The central reservation on part of the A47 was damaged following a crash in Norwich.

Emergency services were called to the crash near Keswick, between the Thickthorn roundabout and A140 at just before 7.30pm last night (Sunday, March 4).

Norfolk Police said the road has been closed, King’s Lynn bound, between the A140 and A11 due to the crash.

Part of the road was closed but the damage was cleared by 8.40pm.

Fire crews from Earlham, Carrow and Sprowston attended and have assisted the police in making the scene safe.

There were a number of reports of standing water on parts of the carriageway, including in the area where the crash occurred.

A spokesman in the Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service control room said they had been requested by police to help with flooding at the Thickthorn roundabout and had sent a pump to the scene.
