A “pig shack” was one of the more unusual objects that caused delays on Norfolk’s roads this morning.

Gusts of up to 80mph resulted in widespread disruption across the county, bringing down trees and power lines.

But on the A47 at Harford Bridge, near Norwich, it was a pig shed causing disruption.

It is understood that the shed was blown onto the road by high winds.

On Twitter, Daniel Bush said: “Pig shack blown onto A47 near Norwich. Police say they are not sure yet if it was caused by the wind, or a big bad wolf.”

Norfolk Police said the landowner was attempting to remove the shed off the road using a tractor.
