The man, in his 40s and from the Beccles area, was due to answer bail on Wednesday (November 20) as investigations continue into what happened when Alec Pentelow-Bramham died following a collision in Southtown Road, Great Yarmouth.

Mr Pentelow-Bramham, 25, was riding his black Lexmoto Arrow motorbike along the stretch at around 10pm on Tuesday, November 6, when the crash between his bike and a black Peugeot 207 happened.

He was treated at the scene and the road was closed for four hours.

An inquest into his death at Norfolk Coroner's Court in Norwich in November found he died of a "severe head injury".
