Police footage has captured the centre of a town grinding to a halt while a pontoon was transported to its final destination.

Having begun its route in Plymouth, the load was transported for more than 350 miles and reached journey’s end at Commercial Road in Lowestoft.

Footage shared by Norfolk and Suffolk Roads Policing Unit showed traffic coming to a halt while the vehicle negotiated tight bends at slow speed.

Drivers have experienced delays throughout Norfolk and Suffolk today as the pontoon was driven along several of the region’s major roads including the A11 and A47.
