Officers were called around 8.50am today to reports of a collision involving a motorcyclist and a Scania HGV on Salhouse Road.

The rider of the motorbike, a man aged in his 50s, died at the scene. The driver of the HGV was uninjured.

The road was closed in both directions whilst emergency services attended, and re-opened around 12.40pm.

Officers are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the collision, particularly anyone who saw the manner of driving and riding prior to the incident.

They are appealing to those with dashcam footage to come forward.

Witnesses should contact the Wymondham Roads Policing Team on 101.

The Salhouse Road closure put extra strain on the already heavy traffic on Sprowston Road today, as it struggled to accommodate drivers going into Norwich.
