There are reports of long delays on the roads in Great Yarmouth following crashes in two of the town's main access points.

Following a four-vehicle collision on Breydon Bridge at around 10.30am this morning, a man in his 60s was rushed to hospital following a second crash in the town.

At around 11.39am, two vehicles were involved in a collision on Pasteur Road near the Tesco Roundabout, which saw one car hit the road's central reservation.

A rapid response vehicle and an ambulance attended the scene, treating a man in his 60s, who was unconscious when paramedics arrived.

He has since been resuscitated and taken to the James Paget Hospital for further care, and was breathing while in the ambulance.

The driver in the other vehicle involved was uninjured.

One motorist has described traffic in the area as 'horrendous', saying that it had taken him more than an hour to drive from Gorleston to Great Yarmouth.
