East Anglian Air Ambulance medics were tasked to the accident, which happened at around 7.50pm, landing nearby just before 8.30pm.

A blue Suzuki motorbike was travelling along the Ketteringham Road towards Wymondham when it was in a collision with the rear of a green Fendt tractor which had a grass cutting attachment on it.

Dr Jenny Townsend and CCP Jemma Varela treated the rider of the motorbike, a man in his 50s, for serious leg injuries.

The patient was anaesthetised on scene before being airlifted to Addenbrooke’s Hospital where his condition is described as stable with limb-threatening injuries.
