Officers were called at 7.35am after reports that the trailer of the articulated truck had turned over at the Dickleburgh and Thelveton roundabout.

The junction marks the transition between the single carriageway and the double carriageway section to Scole.

Inspector Lou Provart, of Norfolk Police, said one lane had been blocked and there was slow progress for traffic in the area.

Police stayed on scene for most of the day and closed the roundabout while the lorry was recovered.
