A cyclist has been taken to hospital after an incident in Norwich.

Police were called to Dereham Road, near The Reindeer, at 5.30pm on Tuesday after reports of a crash between a car and a bicycle.

The East of England Ambulance Service was also in attendance and sent an ambulance crew to the scene. Paramedics treated a man, in his 30s, for an arm and leg injury.

He was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University hospital for further treatment.
