Two motor cyclists were killed on a Norfolk road on Sunday.
The tragedy happened just days after a hard hitting video had been released by police an earlier fatality involving a motor cyclist which has been viewed by nine million users on YouTube
Police received a call at 1.53pm yesterday to a report that two motorcyclists had been involved in a collision on the B1136 between Haddiscoe and Hales.
The two motorcyclists were confirmed as fatalities at the scene a short while afterwards. The two victims, both males, were each riding motorcycles, a BMW and Aprilla.
Head of Roads Policing for Norfolk and Suffolk, Chief Inspector Chris Spinks, said: “This is a tragic incident and our thoughts are with families and friends of those involved at this difficult time.
“A full investigation into the cause of these fatalities needs to take place before I can comment further on this particular road traffic collision.”
The incident comes just a few days after the Constabulary released ‘David’s Story’ – a video featuring clips of a fatal collision captured on a rider’s head-cam in a bid to get motorcyclists and drivers to think seriously about road safety.
