Norfolk and Suffolk roads policing department tweeted: “We are dealing with three tragedies over last 24 hours. We are investigating the causes and supporting families our thoughts are with all involved.”

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 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.
