A cyclist has died following a crash in a Norfolk village.

Police are appealing for witnesses after the male cyclist died at the scene of the crash on the Reepham Road in Swannington yesterday (June 7) at around 4pm.

A 55-year-old man from the Reepham area was arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and remains in police custody. He was driving a grey Nissan Nevara.

Officers are appealing for witnesses. They particularly want to trace the driver of a small black van who was driving along that stretch of road at the time.
