The B1354 in Briston is currently blocked after a motorbike ended up underneath a lorry this afternoon (Tuesday).

A black Suzuki and green DAF truck were involved in the crash which happened just after 3.10pm on Tithe Barn Lane.

The East Anglian Air Ambulance, firefighters from Holt, paramedics and police officers were called.

An East of England Ambulance Service spokesman said the two people on the motorbike received minor injuries.

The rider suffered shoulder and wrist injuries and the passenger received chest injuries.

Both were taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital by land ambulance, but the air ambulance crew helped at the scene.

A Norfolk police spokesman said the lorry driver was not injured.

The firefighters used granules to absorb a petrol leak from the motorbike.
