Two boys had a narrow escape after car mounted a pavement and crashed into a bicycle near a Norfolk zoo.

Police are appealing for information after the vehicle failed to stop after the collision, which took place at about 5.10pm on Bank Holiday Monday in Banham, near Attleborough.

A 13-year-old boy was pushing a bicycle and walking with a friend along the path in Kenninghall Road when a car approached them from the direction of Banham Zoo.

As it neared them, it mounted the pavement and whilst the boy was pulled out of the way by his friend, the car caught the bicycle underneath and dragged it down the road.
