A van driver died when his van overturned near the Royal Estate.

Police were called to the A149 at Babingley, near Sandringham, yesterday lunchtime.

They found a van had overturned and come to rest on a bank. No other vehicles were involved.

The driver of the van, a man in his 60s, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The road was closed for more than four hours, causing gridlock on lanes around the estate.

The crash happened close to where Prince Phillip's car overturned, after it was involved in a collision with another vehicle on January 17, 2019.
