A pedestrian has died after being involved in a crash on the A1062 in Ludham.

The male pedestrian was involved in a collision with a car in the hamlet of Johnson Street, Ludham, yesterday.

He was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for treatment, but sadly died earlier today.

Police are now in the process of investigating what happened, while immediate and extended family are being contacted.

Emergency services, including an air ambulance and a volunteer critical care paramedic from the Suffolk Accident Rescue Service, attended the scene at 1.45pm yesterday following reports of a serious collision. Norwich Road, the main route between the Broadland villages of Ludham and Horning, was closed in both directions.

A driver who passed the scene said: 'We live in Ludham and heard all the sirens a few minutes later when we got home. I think the air ambulance was trying to land just after as well as one of the helicopters circling for a couple of minutes.'

Anyone who witnessed the collision is asked to contact Norfolk police on 101.
