Police were called to the scene at around 3pm after the tree fell onto the van causing significant damage to the roof and windscreen. The driver was not injured.

The road was blocked for nearly an hour and a half as a team from Highway England worked to move the tree.

It follows similar incidents around the county today due to heavy rain and strong winds.

A fallen tree brought down power cables on Buxton Road in Frettenham, near Coltishall. Fallen trees also blocked roads in Great Fransham and Parhill Fair Green, near King's Lynn. A caravan at Reedham was also damaged by a fallen tree.
