The peaceful Ride Against Racism, which attracted around 20 bikers from across the county, left St Peter’s Street in Norwich just outside City Hall on Sunday, June 14.

As the bikes left to travel along the ring road, spectators of the socially distant event shouted out the name George Floyd, the black American man who was killed by a white police officer who knelt on his neck for just under nine minutes.
