A post on the King's Lynn Police Twitter feed said the Clenchwarton Road exit from the interchange was blocked.

The incident has continued to cause queues of traffic on the A17 back to Terrington St Clement and as far away as Tilney All Saints on the A47, according to AA Roadwatch.

As of about 5.30pm, AA Roadwatch reported that the A47 was closed and that recovery was still taking place and that there was spillage of fuel on the roundabout causing congestion.
