Police are continuing to hunt for the driver of a silver BMW after a teenage biker was left for dead following a hit-and-run.

Wayne Tingey, from Kessingland, was left with a bleed on the brain, a fractured shoulder and a bruised coccyx following the crash in Denmark Road, Lowestoft on Thursday, March 7.

The teenager had been travelling home following his work experience as a painter and decorator, when he was knocked off his 100cc motorcycle – that was later written off – and taken to the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston.
