A driver who left the scene of a crash in which a woman was injured while checking on the condition of a deer, has been traced by police.

An elderly man and woman were travelling in a grey Volvo V50 estate along the B1156, near Blakeney, between 5pm and 6.30pm on Saturday, December 8 when the car was in collision with a deer, near to the junction with Galley Hill Farm.

The elderly woman got out of the car to check on the deer and was subsequently involved in a collision with another vehicle, causing her to fall over.

The woman remains in hospital in a stable condition.

Officers can confirm the driver of the second car has now been spoken to and enquiries are ongoing.
