Police are appealing for information after the woman was involved in the collision with the moped on Saturday.

The woman was on a zebra crossing in Church Terrace, Wisbech at about 3.30pm when she was hit by the white moped which had also collided with a white van.

PC James Moore said: “The pedestrian was taken to hospital but thankfully didn’t suffer any serious injury.

“We would urge the rider of the moped who was wearing dark clothing and a silver helmet or the pillion passenger, who was also in dark outer clothing but without a helmet to come forward and speak to police.
