Police are appealing for witnesses to a serious injury collision between a motorbike and a tractor in a north Norfolk village yesterday.

Officers were called to the village of Fulmodeston, near Fakenham, just before 12pm to reports of a collision between a Suzuki Bandit motorbike, which was travelling along Stibbard Road, and a JCB tractor, driving in the opposite direction.

Emergency services attended the scene, including the air ambulance, and the male rider of the motorbike, believed to be in his 20s, was taken to the Norfolk & Norwich University hospital with serious arm injuries.

Police are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the collision or the manner of driving of either vehicle prior to the incident.

Anyone with information should contact PC Robert Connor at Wymondham Roads Policing Team on 101.
