There were long delays on a Suffolk road on Sunday afternoon (December 3) due to reindeer blocking it in both directions.

The A11 was blocked between Barton Mills near the A1101 and the A134 at Thetford due to the incident. 

A spokesman for National Highways said that reindeer had blocked the carriageway in both directions. 

At just before 5.30pm, National Highways: East posted on X, formerly Twitter, that Suffolk Police had removed the road closures and traffic was being released.
