A cyclist remains in hospital today after colliding with a parked car in Tunstead, near Wroxham.

The man, aged in his early 80s, suffered serious injuries in the smash in the town's Market Street on Wednesday around 2.30pm.

He was rushed to Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital where he is continuing to receive treatment.

The road was closed for several hours while emergency services responded to the incident near the school.
