This is the moment a lorry had to slam on its brakes to avoid hitting another car on the A47 - causing the huge crane it is carrying to slip off its bed.
The incident between a car and a lorry shut a roundabout on the A47 in Acle on Monday evening. Dashcam footage from the lorry, which was carrying a crane, shows a blue pickup truck moving into the right-hand lane before it breaks sharply in front of it.The lorry appears to narrowly avoid smashing into the back of the truck before it comes to a stop at the roundabout. The crash caused the crane to slip from the bed of the lorry. Police were called to the incident at just after 7pm with the roundabout being cleared at 7.40pm.A picture from the scene shows a second crane towering above the lorry in attempt to secure the dislodged crane to the vehicle.
