A busy north Norfolk road had to be closed in both directions after a crash.

Norfolk police were called to the accident at around 11.30am on Saturday, February 2.

It happened on the A148 at Fakenham, close to the Shell garage near to the roundabout on the outskirts of the market town.

The road remained closed for more than an hour while the emergency services dealt with the incident.

Norfolk police took to Twitter to advise drivers to take alternative routes, and also issued a warning.

“With the bad weather, make sure you adjust your speed and braking distance accordingly. This is to keep yourself and other road users safe!”

An ambulance crew from the East of England Ambulance Service Trust also attended.
