Traffic has eased as the county celebrates the second day of the Royal Norfolk Show.
Tens of thousands of visitors flocked to the Norfolk Showground yesterday as the agricultural event made its much-anticipated return.
Heavy queues were forming on the A47 from North Tuddenham heading towards the city - with earlier delays reported to be about 15 minutes long.
There were queues in Easton and in the A47, heading westbound, there are stoppages at exit for the slip road to the Norfolk Showground.
Traffic was also said to be slow on the A11 from Wymondham and in Drayton Road in Hellesdon heading into the city.
On Wednesday, car parks were at 90-95pc capacity and while no attendance figures have been confirmed, it is expected that the two-day total will be about 90,000.
A spokesman said: "It was a very busy Wednesday."
