A driver making a three-point turn collided with two nine-year-old boys on their bikes in a Norfolk town, with investigators now seeking to speak with the man, police have said.

Police are appealing for information following reports of a collision in Gorleston on Monday (January 14).

They say it happened near to One Stop on Brasenose Avenue at about 5.20pm and involved a grey-silver car and two cyclists, both boys aged nine.

The driver, a man believed to be in his 60s, stopped to speak with the boys and then left the scene, police said.
