A crash has closed the A47 in Norfolk with witnesses saying an air ambulance was in attendance.

The road links Norwich with Great Yarmouth and is a popular route for those visiting the seaside town.

Two vehicles were involved in the incident between Paddys Loke and Branch Road.

Traffic officers have closed the road at the Great Yarmouth end and delays are expected to continue for the next few hours.

Police investigating the rape of a woman in Peterborough will spend today revisiting the area where the attack happened.

The woman in her 40s was sexually assaulted in the Oundle Road area following a night out last Saturday.

She was approached by a man who then dragged her to a quieter location.

Police want to speak to a man described as black, around 5’8” of medium build and aged in his 30s, who spoke with a foreign accent.

We hope that the activity in the area will help to jog someone’s memory about something they saw that could help us to catch the offender.

It's possible someone might have seen or heard a man matching the description talking to a woman who may have seemed quite distressed.

Essex Eagles have qualified for the quarter-finals of the T20 Blast - with a bit of a helping from the weather.

They were set a target of 185 to win against Glamorgan at Chelmsford but they didn't have to bat in the end after the rain came to their rescue.

That meant that the match was abandoned and Essex got the point they needed to make it through to the last eight.

The Eagles finished 4th in their group, just ahead of Surrey and Kent.
