A man in his 50s sustained serious head injuries following a collision on the A47.
Police are appealing for witnesses following a serious road collision in Tilney All Saints, near King's Lynn.
Officers were called shortly after 9.30am yesterday morning (Sunday, January 28) to reports of a collision involving a white Mercedes lorry and a white Nissan NV200 van on the A47 heading towards Wisbech.
The driver of the van, a man aged in his 50s, was airlifted to Addenbrooke's Hospital with serious head injuries, where he remains.
