Police are urging drivers to avoid one of Lynn’s main shopping areas this afternoon, Sunday, December 21, because of traffic problems.

With just a few days left before Christmas, shoppers are out in force looking for last minute festive bargains.

But, in a message posted on its Twitter account a short time ago, Norfolk Police warned of congestion around the Hardwick industrial estate.

The tweet said: “We are aware of issues with traffic in the #Hardwick Retail Park in #KingsLynn due to volume of traffic. Please avoid area unless necessary.”

The force says it believes the problem is down to the large number of shoppers in the area, rather than any collisions in the area.
