An appeal has been launched after a pedestrian was found injured on the A47 in Gorleston.
The 63-year-old man from the Norwich area was found on the Lowestoft bound dual carriageway between the Harfreys and Victoria Road roundabouts at Gorleston last night (Wednesday, November 27).
He was taken to the James Paget University Hospital for treatment where his injuries were described as minor.
It is believed the man could have been involved in a collision with a vehicle which failed to stop at the scene.
Police are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the collision or may have seen a man walking on the verge, carrying a flashing torch.
