Update: Traffic flowing again after lorry sheds its load on Norwich ring road

Traffic was delayed at one of Norwich's busiest junctions this morning after a lorry shed its load of metal sheeting.

Vehicles were tailing back along Mile Cross Lane and Boundary Road after the lorry shed its load close to the major traffic lights junction of Aylsham Road.

The lorry shed its load just before 10am and a crane was on the scene by 10.45am to clear the obstruction, but the metal sheeting had also damaged the road so the Highways Agency were also on the scene to assess the situation.

However the road was cleared of debris and traffic was flowing again by 11.20am.
