Two 110-foot abnormal loads are set to cause disruption for drivers in Norfolk this weekend.

The 68-tonne vehicles carrying modular buildings are being escorted by police as they travel on some of the region's busiest routes.

The loads are embarking on a long journey from Cramlington in Northumberland to Bowthorpe Road in Norwich.

The 16-foot-wide units will be escorted by Norfolk Constabulary from the A14 at the Cambridgeshire border, along the A11, A47, A1270 and the A140 before joining local roads to the site.

The first convoy made up of one unit and an escort vehicle will hit roads at 8.30am on Saturday with drivers being warned to expect delays.

The second, transporting a similar load, will leave at the same time on Sunday following the same route.
