Police were called at around 7.40am to reports of a two-vehicle collision at the Hales junction.

Upon arrival at the scene, officers found that a car had been involved in a crash with a van, causing partial blockage to the road and slowing traffic in both directions.

Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service mobilised appliances from Loddon and Carrow to assist police, although no one was trapped in their vehicle.

The East of England Ambulance Service were also in attendance, but there were no serious injuries.

The junction is infamous for an accident record that makes it the most dangerous junction in Norfolk.

Work is set to get underway on a £1.6m project to improve the safety of the junction, with the addition of a new roundabout among the changes.

Bus operator First Norwich has tweeted that there are major delays to its X2 and X22 services due to the incident.

Meanwhile, Border Bus tweeted that there are long delays in both directions and that 146 buses are diverting via Poringland to avoid queues and unable to serve Thurton.

More details to follow.
