Two crashes have happened on the A47 tonight.

A car overturned on the A47 on the Dereham side of Hockering at about 7pm, with an off-duty nurse and police officer going to help.

Fire crews and ambulance went to the scene.

And, at 6pm, there was also a crash on the A47 between Norwich and Acle.

Police closed the road going eastbound on the A47 near to the turn off to Lingwood.

The accident, in which a red Peugeot 206 came off the road, happened on the single carriageway stretch of the road, near to where it becomes a double carriageway stretch.
