Sze-Ming Cheung was cycling on Reepham Road in Swannington, near Reepham, when he was in a crash with a grey Nissan Navara.

The driver of the car, a 55-year-old from the Reepham area, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

Following the crash, which happened at about 4pm on Thursday, June 7, police issued an appeal to trace the driver of a small black van.

Officers have not yet been able to trace the driver and, a week on from the crash, have renewed their plea for him to come forward.

Police have spoken to a number of witnesses but are also looking for anyone with dash-cam footage of the incident to get in touch with them.

Mr Cheung ran Casey’s fish and chip shop in Reepham Road, Hellesdon, with his family also running the next door Chung Hing Chinese take away.

But the former Hellesdon High School pupil was also very well-known as a runner, cyclist, swimmer and triathlete.

He was a member of Norwich Road Runners, had run with Coltishall Jaguars and was a regular at Catton Parkrun.

Runners taking part in the Wroxham 5k race, which was held on Wednesday night (June 13) were able to sign a book of condolence in memory of Sze-Ming.

Chris Harrison, Norwich Road Runners spokesman, said it had been “such a shock” following his death.

He said: “He had been with us for a number of years.

“It’s a very sad time, A lot of people knew him.”

Mr Harrison said some of the athletes taking part in the event, including those from the Norfolk Gazelles club, wore black race outfits as a mark of respect to Mr Cheung.

Casey’s fish and chip shop and the Chung Hing takeaway in Hellesdon are both shut.

A sign in the window reads they will remain closed until further notice.

■ Anyone with information about the crash or those with dash-cam footage have been urged to contact PC Matthew Gouldsmith in the Serious Collision Investigation Team at Wymondham on 101.
