A main road has been closed after a lorry overturned.

The truck rolled on the A149 at Bablingley, near Sandringham, close to the spot where Prince Philip rolled his Land Rover in January last year.

The road is currently closed between Knights Hill and Bablingley, with diversions in place.

A side road has been cordoned off by police, and barriers are now being erected across the road.
