The three people were pronounced dead at the scene after silver Kia Ceed travelling towards King’s Lynn was in collision with a lorry travelling in the opposite direction at about 11.15am.

The lorry driver suffered minor injuries.

There was also a minor collision between a silver Ford Transit minibus and a white Mercedes Sprinter van following the first collision and the A47 was closed for about eight hours.
