Stop and go boards will be used to control traffic in the area after 9am this morning, while the work is completed. The restrictions are expected to be lifted by 4pm at the latest.

A West Norfolk Council statement said: "The trees are being removed due to an aggressive fungal pathogen that affects the roots.

"The trees need to be removed before stem failure, as this is an area of high footfall and traffic movements.

"A traffic management order is in place and the work should be completed within one day.

"Replacement Lime trees will be planted later in the year."
