The East of England Ambulance Service and East Anglian Air Ambulance have also gone to the scene.

The road was shut in both directions and remained shut for several hours, with police urging motorists to avoid the area.

Norfolk police said access to Easton would have to be via the A47 Easton roundabout and Konectbus tweeted that the 6.15pm service 4 from Norwich would be unable to serve Easton.

The road has since re-opened.
