A 16-year-old cyclist has suffered serious injuries in a collision with a car in Hellesdon that closed a road for seven hours.

Police were called to the A1067 Drayton High Road at around 8.20pm on Saturday after the collision between a blue VW Polo and the cyclist, a 16-year-old girl, who were travelling in the same direction towards Norwich.

The road was closed until 3.20am on Sunday while emergency services carried out an initial investigation.

The teenager was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for treatment.

The driver, a man in his late teens, was uninjured.
