The Queen's pageantmaster Bruno Peek is suffering dizziness and "dreadful headaches" a month after he was reportedly hit by a bus in Gorleston.

And the 70-year-old  has shared his frustration that the investigation has yet to reveal what happened when he was allegedly struck outside the Short Blue pub at around 2pm on Saturday, April 26, and "left for dead."

Police issued an appeal for witnesses following the collision.

A statement this week said: "Officers are in the process of speaking to witnesses and reviewing CCTV in relation to the incident, enquiries are ongoing."

Mr Peek, who was rushed to  hospital for scans and checks and had "loads" of stitches in the top of his head, said: "I am still suffering with dizziness and dreadful headaches.

"Sometimes it just throws me off balance.

"I have still been able to work, I have no choice but to carry on. It is going to take more than a bang on the head to stop me serving my Queen."

Of the investigation he said: "The police looked at one bus but I was still standing on the pavement. It is a bit of a mystery, I keep waiting to hear from them.

"But whatever hit me, left me there."
