Drivers can expect heavy traffic on the A11 in Norfolk this weekend due to two big events in the county.

The Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship is at Snetterton on Saturday and Sunday, with the Old Buckenham Airshow taking place on the same days just down the road.

Thousands of people are expected to attend both events, with the A11 designated as the main route for traffic.

Organisers of the airshow are encouraging spectators to avoid going through Attleborough and instead take the Shropham turning off the A11. Yellow signs have been put up along the trunk road to inform drivers.

For those heading to the touring cars, the turn-off for Snetterton is just a few minutes down the road.
