Two recovery vehicles have been on stand-by on the Acle Straight waiting for the rush hour to die down and begin the process of removing the vehicle.

Emergency services rushed to the scene at around 11.10pm on Wednesday (January 22).

Three fire crews were called from Acle, Great Yarmouth, and Gorleston, to make the scene safe.

The last crew left the scene at 12.20am.
