A ten-year-old boy remains in a serious but stable condition after he was involved in a collision with a Ford Escort car in Lowestoft.

Police are appealing for witnesses after officers were called at 3.45pm yesterday afternoon (Monday) to the collision on Normanston Drive, close to the St Peters Street/ Rotterdam Road roundabout.

The boy suffered a fracture to his lower leg and was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital by air ambulance.

He is now in a serious but stable condition.

An off-duty nurse was among the first responders on the scene.

From the ambulance service one rapid response vehicle, an ambulance officer, an ambulance crew attended and the Norwich-based air ambulance landed at nearby Normanston Park.

The road was closed by police between St Peter's Street and Fir Lane just before 4pm.
