The A149 has now re-opened after a crash in which three people were injured.

Police have now re-opened the A149 between Dersingham and Babingley after two vehicles collided just before 5am this morning (Thursday, March 6).

One person was taken to Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital with serious injuries. Two other people suffered minor injuries.

Three ambulances and two crews of firefighters were called to the scene.

The closure of the A149 in both directions forced traffic from the neighbouring villages along the coast to divert through Dersingham.

This caused some difficulty for heavy goods vehicles trying to negotiate some of the minor narrow roads, such as Heath Road, where queues of cars formed to allow lorries to pass.

Traffic also backed up along Manor Road with the exit onto Sandringham Hill being hampered by further queues as the result of a set of temporary traffic lights in place for roadworks.
