Part of the A143 is currently closed due a crash in the early hours of this morning.

Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service were called to a road traffic collision in Belton, near Fritton, along the A143 Beccles Road at 1.46am on Saturday. 

Crews from Great Yarmouth and Gorleston attended the scene, which was made safe and the passengers were released using hydraulic rescue equipment.

The road was first closed while investigation works took place and while this is now completed, it is still shut due to emergency resurfacing repairs and spillage. 

The closure is on the A143 Beccles Road both ways from Church Lane to Beccles Road. 

Norfolk Police tweeted that diversions are in place and people should avoid this route.
