Mr Robinson died after a collision with two cars at the junction between Lynn Road and Creake Road, near Sculthorpe.

He is believed to have been in his early thirties and a former pupil at Fakenham High School.

Leader of north Norfolk district council and area member for Sculthorpe, Tom Fitzpatrick, described Mr Robinson’s death as a tragedy.

He said: “I’m so very sorry to hear there’s been a fatal accident, especially at this time of year.

“Any loss of life is a tragedy, but when it’s someone young, I think that it’s even worse as they haven’t had the chance to live their life.”

County councillor Marie Strong, who represents areas of Sculthorpe and Fakenham, said: “What a very sad occurrence for all the family and everyone involved.”

Police have urged anyone who may have witnessed the collision, particularly anyone who has dash cam footage which shows the driving manner of the vehicles prior to the incident, to come forward.

Witnesses should contact the Serious Collision Investigation Team (SCIT) at Wymondham on 101.
