In the latest crash, a male pedestrian died after being struck by a BMW car on the A146 in Stockton at about 6.20pm on Saturday.

Police and the ambulance service attended but the pedestrian died at the scene.

Earlier in the afternoon, a female pedestrian died after being hit by a single decker bus at Caister in Ormesby Road around 4pm.

The accident took place at about 8.20pm on Friday when two vehicles – a Honda Civic and an Audi A3 - were involved in the crash.

Police want to speak to anyone who believes they may have witnessed any of the crashes.

Witnesses are asked to contact the serious collision investigation team at Norfolk Constabulary on 101.
