Norfolk police tweeted at just after 6am today that Church Street in Cromer had been temporarily closed due to the fallen festive lights.

Police urged people to avoid the area while they waited for an engineer from the town council to fix the decorations.

The road was reopened by 6.30am, a Norfolk police spokesman said.

The lights are due to be switched on Saturday, December 1.
