Road closure after home matches in Norwich

New plans have come into play to ease match day traffic problems around the Carrow Road - the home stadium of Norwich City Football Club.

After a game, about 26,000 people leave the football club on foot.

Norwich City Council said this can be dangerous, as pedestrians and cars try to navigate the road at the same time.

Carrow Road was shut for the first time after the local derby against Ipswich Town on Sunday and will be closed at the end of every home game this season.

The move was agreed by the city and county councils, the club and the police.

The road was closed with manned barriers at the Koblenz Avenue junction and at Clarence Road and King Street.
