The A47 just outside of Norwich is now clear after a car tyre burst on the dual carriageway and caused long rush hour delays.

The incident happened just before 8am this morning on the eastbound road about half a mile from the Thickthorn roundabout.

A Norfolk police spokesman said the blue Hyundai broke down on one lane and officers were called to the scene.

The car was stuck between the Thickthorn roundabout and Harford Bridge A140 roundabout.

It was removed from the road which was cleared just after 8.50am.
