A busy stretch of road was closed for over an hour today following a two-car crash.

Police were called to the A47 Acle Straight at around 2.55pm.

One of the drivers was taken to hospital for treatment for minor injuries and the road was closed while the vehicles were recovered.

It was re-opened at 4.25pm and traffic is reportedly still slow with a backlog along South Quay in Great Yarmouth.
