Police are appealing for witnesses to two incidents on the A11 on Bank Holiday Monday.

At around 4.15pm a black Fiat Punto was travelling northbound near Attleborough when it struck a spare wheel which had fallen from another vehicle.

The Punto was damaged and subsequently broke down at Wymondham.

At around 4.30pm, a police vehicle was providing a lane closure around the Punto when a red lorry overtook both vehicles.

There was a collision behind the lorry involving a black Honda Civic and a black Ford Focus.
