An accident scene on the A146 near Poringland which caused earlier traffic delays has been cleared.

Norfolk Police said disruptions were caused on the road after a lorry jackknifed earlier today.

Officers attended the scene and helped recover the vehicle.

In a separate incident, a second lorry reportedly stuck on the NDR roundabout at Horsford is causing significant backlogs.

Police have warned drivers to take care on the roads as a result of the heavy snow falls.

'We remind drivers that all vehicles should take their time when driving on the roads today.
