Emergency services were called just before 7.40pm on Monday, June 11 to reports that a Ford Transit and a bicycle were involved in a crash at the junction of Great Melton Road, Henstead Road and Queens Road in Hethersett.

The East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust treated a man in his 60s for serious head injuries. The man was conscious when the ambulance arrived to take him to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

The driver of the van was uninjured.

Great Melton road was closed while emergency services attended and was reopened around 10.40pm.

Officers are keen to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the collision or the manner of driving/riding of either vehicle prior to the incident.
