From the lynn news.

A 34-year-old motorcyclist from the Lynn area died after being involved in a collision with two cars on the A134 Lynn Road at Wereham this morning.
Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident, which happened at about 7.50am at the junction with Lime Kiln Road and closed the A134 for about four-and-a-half hours.

A Norfolk police spokesman said: "A Triumph 900cc motorcycle was travelling along the A134 towards Thetford when, for reasons unknown, it was involved in a collision with a cream Daihatsu Sirion and a green Daewoo Espero.

"Sadly the rider of the motorcycle, a 34-year-old man from the Lynn area, died as a result of the collision."

The 21-year-old driver of the Daihatsu, which was also travelling towards Thetford, comes from the Lynn area and was uninjured.

A 39-year-old woman from the Downham area was driving the Daewoo, which was travelling in the opposite direction, towards Lynn. She received minor hand injuries and was treated by an ambulance crew at the scene.

The name of the motorcyclist is not being released until formal identification has taken place and next of kin have been informed.

Police said a silver Ford Puma is also believed to have been in the area at the time of the collision.

The A134 was closed from 7.50am to 12.30pm, with a diversion set up at the B1160 roundabout on the outskirts of Wereham, while emergency services dealt with the aftermath of the collision.

Officers are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen what happened or who saw any of the vehicles before the accident. Anyone who can help should contact PC Michael Robertson at Norfolk police's serious collision investigation team on 0845
