A motor cyclist received serious injuries - including multiple broken bones - when he was struck by a 4x4 in Elm that failed to stop.

His daughter has appealed through social media for help in trying to find the driver responsible.

One woman who saw the incident posted to Facebook: "I witnessed this! It was so shocking to see the bike being dragged like that.

"I'm so glad he is alive. I wish I'd thought to take the number plate but was in so much shock."

The hit and run happened at around 5.10pm last Thursday (June 6) and the daughter said "everyone's help" was needed to find the driver of the 4x4.

"We need everyone's help," she said. "Please share the hell out of this. My dad was run over by a 4x4 at Elm near Wisbech.

"It didn't stop and ran completely over him breaking his legs, arm, shoulder and ribs plus other injuries.

"He is lucky to be alive. The vehicle dragged his bike for about 200 yards under the vehicle."

She added: "If anyone knows anyone with a front end or underside damaged 4x4 contact Norfolk Police ASAP."

The witness added that she believes the vehicle was "a silver pick up style 4x4".

Norfolk Police have been contacted for comment.

A spokesman for Norfolk Police said the incident involved three vehicles including the motor cycle and two other vehicles that left the scene.

The spokesman said: "We were called to Church Road, Emneth at 5.13pm on Thursday (6). Ambulance also attended. The initial report was of a motorcyclist being injured in a three vehicle collision. He suffered serious but not life-threatening or changing injuries.

"A silver coloured pick-up truck and a red Mini were also involved but neither vehicle stopped at the scene. The last known direction of travel for them was towards Elm. "We would appeal for any information to help trace the drivers of the other vehicles involved or if anyone has any dash cam footage to contact Norfolk Police on 101 quoting incident 358 of June 6."
