Parts of a roof and other structures brought down by yesterday's storm were left lying across John Kennedy Road between the junctions with Loke Road and North Street.

Firefighters were called to a number of reports of unsafe buildings in the area, as gusts of up to 60mph hit west Norfolk.

Long queues have built up around Loke Road and North Lynn this morning.

A West Norfolk council spokesman said: "The clean-up operation is under way on John Kennedy Road, with the aim of getting the road re-opened as soon as possible.

"We are working with county highways and contractors to remove the materials that Storm Ciara has blown onto the road. We anticipate that the closure will last until lunchtime or early afternoon. We would advise people to find alternative routes into or out of town."
