Traffic is building up on Bank Holiday Monday as people head towards the coast to enjoy the sunshine.

Delays are being reported by AA Roadwatch for those travelling towards the coast in Heacham with average speeds of 10mph. 

AA Roadwatch says delays are expected to increase on the A149 eastbound.

Traffic is also slow on the A47 Acle Straight heading towards Yarmouth.

And there are also "severe delays" being reported on the A140 on the outskirts of Aylsham with average speeds of five mph for those heading in the direction of Cromer.

"Severe delays" mean traffic is moving at an average of five mph on the A1151 Stalham Road northbound between Bear's Grove and B1354 Horning Road.

A father-of-two who was returning to Norwich from an early morning beach visit to Winterton said the A47 towards the coast near Acle was "gridlocked".
