A motorcyclist has died following a road collision near Diss.

Officers from Norfolk police were called shortly before 7pm on Friday to reports of a collision between a blue and white Suzuki motorcycle and a grey Audi A4 car on High Road in Needham.

The rider of the motorcycle, a man in his 50s, died at the scene.

The driver of the Audi suffered minor injuries, but did not require hospital treatment.

Road closures were put in place, and the road was reopened after the vehicles were recovered.

Norfolk police are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the collision, particularly anyone who saw the manner of driving of any vehicle prior to the incident or may have any dash camera footage of the incident.

Any witnesses should contact Sergeant Peter Howlett of the Roads and Armed Policing Team on 101, quoting reference number 387 of October 26.
