Motorists faced disruption after a lorry overturned on a roundabout on the A11 at Thetford.

Emergency services were called at 7am this morning to reports that a heavy goods vehicle had turned over at the roundabout junction where the B1107 Brandon road joins the A11.

Fire crews from Thetford, Methwold, Watton and Attleborough were called in to deal with the accident that had left the lorry on its side on the roundabout.

A Norfolk police spokesman said it is believed the lorry had been joining the A11 from the Thetford A134 road when it overturned. It is not thought to be carrying any hazardous material.

The A11 remained open in both directions but traffic was limited to one lane northbound causing tailbacks.

The roundabout was due to be closed later in the morning while the lorry is removed.

The police spokesman said officers were coordinating with recovery specialists for the removal of the vehicle but the decision has been taken to wait until after the rush hour to minimise disruption to motorists.

rush hour to minimise disruption to motorists. The road will be closed for a short period at around 9.30am while it is removed.”
