Two motorcyclists suffered serious injuries after a crash on Great Yarmouth’s seafront.

The crash happened on North Drive, close to the Barnard Avenue junction, and involved two motorcycles and a stationary motorhome at about 5.45pm on Sunday.

Emergency services attended the scene, including the East Anglian Air Ambulance, and one motorcyclist was taken to Addenbrooke’s hospital in Cambridgeshire with life-threatening injuries.

He is in a serious but stable condition.

The second motorcyclist was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital with serious injuries.

The emergency response also involved the fire brigade and a Suffolk Accident Rescue Service volunteer paramedic.

Any witnesses to the crash, including anyone with any dash cam footage of the collision or manner of driving of the vehicles prior to the collision, should call Norfolk Police on 101 quoting incident reference number 352 from Sunday, April 15.
