A road was closed for more than two hours following a three vehicle crash.

Emergency services, including police and fire, were called to the crash on the A146 at Beccles just after 5pm today (Friday, February 2).

PC Callum Walchester from the Norfolk and Suffolk Roads Policing Team said two vehicles travelling towards Lowestoft on the Beccles bridge crashed.

This resulted in one of them veering into the opposite lane and colliding head on with another vehicle heading towards Norwich.

PC Walchester said: 'All three vehicles sustained significant damage and were subsequently recovered.
