Three people are believed to be injured following a crash between a van and a crane on the A47 this morning.

Motorists heading into Norwich were facing long delays after the 7am crash involving a white Vauxhall van and a mobile crane at the top of the A146 slip road at Trowse, near Norwich.

Eyewitnesses also said that two other cars were involved, but police have been unable to confirm this.

Police have closed the eastbound stretch of the road and the A146 slip road, but the outer westbound lane, which was closed after the van went into the central reservation, has now re-opened.

Police ambulance and fire crews were all on scene to help free the injured.
