West Lynn road closed after crash

Have your say

The main road through West Lynn has been closed this evening following a crash near the entrance to a housing estate.

Emergency crews were called to the old A17 Clenchwarton Road, close to the Poppyfields junction, at around 6.15pm, following the incident.

The road was closed for a time, with drivers being force to divert along St Peter’s Road to avoid the scene.

No details have yet been released about any injuries, though fire service chiefs said Lynn crews did assist paramedics with “casualty care.”

The crash site is in the area where campaigners want a pedestrian crossing to be installed after a girl was injured in a collision with a car last year.

A fundraising campaign to raise the estimated £50,000 cost of the safety measure is underway.
