All bus services from the city airport's park and ride have been suspended due to an "unauthorised encampment" at the site.

In a tweet on Monday, June 13, Norwich Park and Ride confirmed its 501 route had been affected by the issue and it was unable to open its car park outside Norwich Airport.

No buses are currently running from the site but buses are continuing to serve the airport.

The next nearest park and ride is Sprowston.

A KonectBus spokesman, which run the service, said: "We are working in conjunction with Norfolk County Council, South Norfolk Council and other relevant agencies in relation to the caravans on the airport site.

"We are advising our passengers to use Sprowston Park and Ride in the meantime."

A Norfolk police spokeswoman added: "Police are aware of a traveller encampment at the Norwich Airport Park and Ride.
