Man in critical condition after falling out of moving car on A149
A man remains in a critical condition in hospital after falling out of a moving car on the A149 in Stalham.
Norfolk police said that at about 8am yesterday a red BMW 1 series was travelling in the direction of North Walsham from Great Yarmouth when a man was seen to leave the moving vehicle, on the passenger side. He fell on the A149 near Richardson’s boatyard and rolled towards the edge of the road. Police said the driver of the BMW did not stop at the scene.

Officers are keen to trace two men who stopped at the scene to assist with the man’s injuries.

Tragedy deepens for cancer-hit coach operator as wife dies suddenly
Norfolk coach operator Charles Reynolds has hailed as a great comfort the “incredible” number of messages from well-wishers following the sudden death of his wife.
Mr Reynolds, who is receiving treatment for cancer, said his wife Julie died in the James Paget Hospital on Thursday following a short illness.
She was 60-years-old.
The couple, he said, had had a “rollercoaster” year following Mr Reynolds’ bombshell cancer diagnosis and the subsequent heartbreaking sale of his fleet of coaches last month.
And in the days leading up to her death he said he was unable to visit her because he was also in the same hospital, his immune system compromised by cancer.
