There were long delays on the roads in and around Norwich this morning.

A vehicle which had broken down on the A47 westbound, just after Postwick, caused one lane to close and heavy traffic in the area.

There were delays of around 30 minutes. 

In Norwich, commuters were also experiencing a higher volume of traffic on the roads. 

There were delays coming in and out of the city including on the A11 Newmarket Road, Unthank Road, the A1242 Yarmouth Road and the A1067.

Ongoing road works are thought to be contributing to the delays. Sweet Briar Road, Riverside Road, Thorpe Road and St Stephens Street are among the key routes where works are currently taking place.

Traffic is now starting to clear and the A47 has been completely reopened.
