A broken down double-decker bus blocked one lane on the Acle Straight for more than three hours.

Police shut the westbound lane on the A47 between Great Yarmouth and Acle at just after 5pm on Wednesday afternoon.

Commuters travelling during rush hour were forced to find an alternative route while drivers already on the Acle Straight reported delays of almost an hour.
