The number of people killed on Norfolk’s roads has fallen to its lowest level in the last 10 years, figures have shown.

Detailed statistics about reported road collisions released by the Department of Transport show that 19 people died across the county in 2021, down from 35 the previous year.

However there were 354 serious injuries in collisions slightly higher than 2020 and broadly unchanged from a decade ago.

Deaths included nine car occupants, five motorcyclists, three pedestrians and a cyclist, a van driver and a HGV driver.

In total there were 1,375 reported injury crashes in 2021 down from a 10 year high of 1,864 in 2016.

Those injured included 175 travelling in a car, 89 motorcyclists, 49 cyclists and 45 pedestrians.

The figures show that 312 people have died in collisions in Norfolk over the past decade with 2013 being the worst year for fatalities with 37 deaths.
