Police to escort three irregular masses throughout Norfolk

Police are said to be escorting three unusual loads on some of the county’s main routes over the next few days.

The planned escorts have asked the police to warn of possible delays on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

On Wednesday March 3rd, officers will be escorting a 20-meter boat from Poole to Oyster Yachts on Tunstead Road in Hoveton.

The boat departs at 1:00 PM and, upon arrival on the A14 at the Cambridge border, travels on local roads such as the A140 and A47 before merging onto the A1064, B1152, A149 and A1151.

As it nears its final destination, the boat will be guided along Horning Road West and Tunstead Road.
