The A47 at Narborough in west Norfolk has reopened, following a crash involving two lorries.

Emergency services were called at about 11.50am today.

A Norfolk police spokesman said the road was closed in both directions at the A1122 roundabout. It reopened at about 2pm.

A spokesman said: “The two drivers suffered minor injuries and were checked over by paramedics from the ambulance service. One was taken to hospital as a precautionary measure. One of the lorries had crossed over onto the opposite carriageway.”
