A man knocked off his bicycle in a hit and run has said he is lucky to still be walking.

Andrew Cranefield, 44, was cycling home from work across the Haven Bridge in Great Yarmouth after 5pm on Wednesday (January 29) when the incident happened.

"The car was speeding excessively and wiped through me," Mr Cranefield said.

"I have massive bruising. I can't believe I'm still walking to be honest. I could have been killed."

He added: "I'm more angry at the fact someone could do that. For all they know I could be dead."
