Action needs to be taken now to prevent more loss of life or serious injury on the A47.

MP Henry Bellingham is pressing the government for investment as parish councils people living alongside the road protest after yet another serious accident.

A man and woman were injured on Thursday afternoon after their car ploughed into a wall in Middleton following a collision with a lorry.

This comes just three weeks after Jeffrey and Marion Hain along with son Christopher were killed after a crash in East Winch.

Parish councils have been calling for years for lower and longer speed limits to cope with the increasing traffic flows. But so far their pleas have gone unheard.

Improvements are needed for the whole of West Norfolk. Lynn became gridlocked on Thursday afternoon as motorists tried to find alternate routes as the A47 at Middleton was closed for almost five hours.

Chairman of East Winch Parish Council Nell Steele said: “One death is one too many.”
