Heightened police activity around the Acle Straight was caused by a car veering off the road near Great Yarmouth.

Police were called at around 2.15pm on Wednesday, January 10, after a Nissan Micra left the road and went into a ditch.

An ambulance was also despatched to the scene, but the female driver was not thought to have suffered serious injuries and was able to remove herself from her car before officers arrived at the scene.

Engineers from Highways England were also called to the scene due to damage caused to what a police spokesman described as the “street furniture”.

The incident happened near the Runham Roundabout, close to the Vauxhall Holiday Park.
