A paraglider who crashed into a Cromer bed and breakfast is now in a stable condition, a Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital spokesperson has confirmed.
The man in his 20s shocked Cromer residents on September 17, after he flew into the Wellington House B&B at around 1pm.
The man was one of two paragliders who were spotted over the town, and was described to be unusually low before he hit the building.
The man suffered serious injuries to his arm and head, and had to be taken to hospital by air ambulance.
A witness at the scene said that following the crash, the man was conscious and could move his fingers, but was told not to stand.
Police at the scene said that the man's injuries were serious but were thought not to be life-threatening.
Anyone who witnessed the incident or anyone with information should contact Norfolk Constabulary on 101.
