A road near Dereham has been cleared after a lorry jackknifed, causing delays for motorists.

The incident happened on the B1135 between Garvestone and Kimberley.

Police were called to the scene just after 7am on Friday to reports that a lorry had jackknifed in the middle of the road.

A spokesman for Norfolk police said that, although the road had been blocked by the lorry, there was a lay-by close to where the incident had happened which meant the road was still passable.

A recovery team was on scene at 9.15am and the road was reopened by 10.15am.
