The A47 heading towards Great Yarmouth has reopened after a crash between a lorry and a van which left drivers experiencing delays this morning

The crash, between a lorry and a black van, happened on the single carriageway near the Lingwood Road junction at about 7.30am at North Burlingham.

An ambulance had gone to the scene, but police do not believe anybody has suffered serious injuries but said one of the drivers was taken to hospital.

The road was cleared by 8.50am.

There were reports of long tailbacks in both directions.

Norfolk police tweeted: “Motorists advised to expect delays following road traffic collision on A47 North Burlingham at junction with Lingwood Road. Police currently at scene. Vehicle awaiting recovery.”
