The road was closed while emergency services attended the scene, with diversions put in place so investigations could be carried out.

The road did not reopen until shortly before 6pm on the day of the crash.

Police have placed blue warning signs by the sides of the Reepham Road, stating that there was a fatal crash at the junction.

The signs are also appealing for witnesses, with Norfolk police keen to hear from anyone who saw the crash, or the manner of driving of either of the vehicles prior to the collision.

Anybody who can help should contact Norfolk police's Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 101 quoting reference CAD 212 of June 26.
