A schoolboy was left with a fractured hand after a collision with a van.

Police said the van driver may have been unaware that their vehicle had been involved in a collision.

The incident happened on Thursday, September 22, at about 7.45am on Norwich Road, in Costessey, as a cyclist and van travelled from Town House Road.

A grey van towing a metal trailer was involved in a collision with a cyclist as the vehicle overtook the bike on the approach to the bridge.

The cyclist, a schoolboy, whose age has not been released, fell off his bike, and later went to hospital where he received treatment for a fractured hand.

Police said the grey van is believed to be a panel van and had ladders on the roof,

Officers have appealed for witnesses, and are also keen to trace the driver of a red car which was travelling behind the van who is thought to have witnessed the incident and may hold important information.
