Get set for what could be the busiest-ever Bank Holiday weekend on Norfolk's roads.

More than 10 million of us are planning to hit the roads over Easter, according to the AA.

Many will be enjoying 10 days off by taking advantage of four public holidays in a row.

Today roads to Norfolk's coast were particularly busy, with heavy traffic on the A47 and A11.

Drivers faced long tailbacks on the A149 this afternoon, as firefighters tackled a major blaze on Dersingham Heath.

The coast road was closed between the George Pratt and Ken Hill roundabouts, as acres of gorse and scrub caught light.
