A statement by the bus service said: “We may experience delays on this service, please bear with us while we get to you.”

A spokeswoman for Norfolk Police, this afternoon said: “This was an abnormal load issue – cars were managing to get past the blockage, but lorries couldn’t get through, and were therefore delayed.

This has since been resolved and the road is clear.”
