The man was launched off his bike and landed in the road.

Shortly after the incident, two paramedics were seen carrying a stretcher out of the back of an ambulance which had its hazard lights flashing.

The ambulance was parked behind the two cars in front.

A group of young adults were standing around the victim, who was lying on the ground obscured by one of the cars.

One bystander said: “I was walking past when it happened. The car went straight into the back of him.”

Speaking to a paramedic, he said: “If the police aren’t onsite already then they’re unlikely to come at all.”

One witness said: “He looked fairly young, like the age of a student. The people around him looked like students too.”

The victim’s current condition is unknown.

If anybody has any information regarding the incident then they are advised to call the local Norwich police on 111.
