Motorists are experiencing heavy delays around Great Yarmouth due to a temporary police closure of Breydon Bridge.

Traffic has built up on both sides of the bridge since the closure, particularly around the Gapton Hall retail park.

The closure has also had a heavy impact on traffic flow into the town, with vehicles brought to a stand still around the Fuller’s Hill roundabout.

The bridge closed at around 11.30am, reopening shortly after 12pm, however traffic remains heavy.
