A precariously-perched tree led to the closure of a rural road.

The closure of the road in Honing, near East Ruston, on Monday night was due to a tree which was hanging over the road suspended by power cables.

North Norfolk police tweeted at around 9pm to say that officers had closed the road and were on scene.

The tweet said a “rather large tree” was being suspended in mid-air by “some flimsy looking power cables”, adding that professionals had been called to deal with the situation.
