A back up of traffic on the A47 has cleared after a vehicle hit the central reservation earlier.

A Norfolk police spokesman said the driver of a blue Corsa had lost control of the vehicle, which spun off the road.

'There were no injuries but damage was caused to the doors of the vehicle and they couldn't be opened.

'The fire service was called to cut the driver free.'

The westbound lane had been backed up between the B1108 and A11 junctions while emergency personnel were on the scene.
