Sergeant Adrian Hales, from the Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed policing team at Acle said: “Following extensive enquiries we are now interested in tracing a blue and white off road motorcycle which we believe may have been the motorcycle involved. We would like to know the whereabouts of this bike, which may well be in the possession of an innocent purchaser and would appeal to the current owner to come forward and contact police.”
“I believe the bike may well have been sold sometime following the collision, and the current owner may well not be aware of the circumstances surrounding the collision. I would be interested in speaking to that person, who may well have important information that will assist the enquiry.”“This was a terrible collision where an elderly lady received serious injuries as a result of the collision, and I’m keen to identify the rider responsible. I am still appealing for anyone with any information about the collision to make contact with us.”

The 70 year old female pedal cyclist is recovering well and continues to make good progress at home.

Anyone with information can contact the Roads and Armed Policing Team at Acle police station, quoting reference 301 of September 7th 2021 on 101, or email Callum.walchester@suffolk.police.uk
