Logs are blocking part of the A47 after a tractor hit a lorry that was carrying them.

Police were called to reports of a crash between a lorry and tractor on the A47 near Swaffham at 5pm on Thursday, May 6.

Part of the A47 carriageway at the A1122 roundabout, near Swaffham Raceway, was left blocked by logs after a lorry holding them rolled over after being hit by a tractor.

Traffic in the area is currently slow but still moving according to the AA Traffic Map.

Elsewhere in the county drivers are experiencing large tailbacks on the A47 between Postwick and Trowse due to roadworks that have closed one lane of traffic.

The A11 at Newmarket Road and the Riverside area of the city is also congested.
