A HGV driver had to take action to avoid a crash due to two van drivers driving dangerously on the A11.

The drivers of two silver Renault vans were seen to be driving erratically and at speeds in excess of the limit at about 2.30pm on Friday March 9 where the A14 meets the junction of the A11.

It was reported the drivers were chatting to each other out of their windows, with the vans side by side with each other. They were also seen to be using mobile phones whilst driving.

This dangerous driving continued at the Fiveways roundabout on the A11 when one of the vans changed lanes, suddenly applying their brakes, and the driver started talking again to the other van driver.

This nearly caused a crash between one of the vans and a HGV vehicle. Both vans continued their journey on the A11 towards Attleborough.

• Anyone who witnessed the vans should contact Suffolk police quoting CAD reference 300 of March 9.
