The A47 has re-opened after a four vehicle crash.

Police were called at 2.49pm today (Monday) to reports of a crash between four cars.

An Audi, Ford, Volkswagen and a Merecdes were involved in the crash at Burlingham, before the dual carriageway merges into a single carriageway.

Fire crews and paramedics were called to the scene but no-one is believed to have been injured.
