Traffic was said to be gridlocked with queues as far back as Gorleston’s inner relief road.

Police were at the scene diverting traffic.

Pedestrian access was maintained.

An engineer on the bridge said the issue was to do with a safety light that wasn’t working.

It is the second time in around ten days the bridge has been closed.

It has now re-opened and traffic is moving freely.
