Drivers are being warned to slow down on wet roads to avoid a crash.

Just after 8am, traffic cops dealt with their first 999 call of the day on the B1140 near Acle.

The single vehicle crash happened off the A47 with no injuries reported.

The black car ended up in the bushes with its air bags activated and a recovery vehicle took the car away from the scene.

PC Steve Lee said on Twitter driver was wearing his seat belt and that is the reason why he was uninjured.

He added: “This is why we always emphasise the importance of seat belts.”

Sgt Chris Harris‏also said on Twitter as it’s wet there were a few crashes occurring.

He added: “Slow down, give yourself time to react and make yourself more visible.”
