Police introduce temporary measures to control holiday traffic in West Norfolk village
Temporary traffic flow measures have been introduced in a West Norfolk coastal village following what police described as "unprecedented" levels yesterday.
Holidaymakers flocked to the borough's coastal areas as temperatures peaked at 33 degrees Celsius on Friday.
And the ensuing traffic problems have led to action in Brancaster.
A post on the King's Lynn Police Twitter feed this morning revealed the action.
It said: "Due to unprecedented numbers of visitors to Brancaster yesterday, we have introduced temporary measures to ease traffic flow in the area.
"Please be considerate & sensible when parking, allowing emergency vehicle access & others to pass".
Key routes in West Norfolk were busy again this morning, with queues on the A149, A47 and A17 around Lynn as holidaymakers headed to the coast.
The warning also came after Coastguard officials revealed they had endured their busiest day on the British coast in four years, dealing with more than 300 incidents.
