DRIVERS are being urged to plan ahead as roads are set to be temporarily closed on Sunday to allow a six-metre wide boat passes through.

The boat will be travelling under police escort.

It will leave Ashmanhaugh at 7.30am and travel along the A1151, A149, B1152 and A1064 to Acle.

It will then head west along the A11, south into Suffolk and across the M11.

Traffic will be stopped at various points along the route to allow the boat to pass safely.
