A toddler has died after being hit by a pick-up truck at a farm in a Norfolk village.

The boy, who was almost two, was struck by a silver Nissan near Fersfield Road, Kenninghall, on Thursday.

Paramedics attended the accident but the child was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after 16:00 GMT.

Authorities are still trying to determine the circumstances surrounding the incident. Police have been speaking to a male driver in his 60s.

A Norfolk Police spokesman said: "Norfolk Constabulary can confirm the toddler was nearly two-years-old but no further information will be released at this stage."

Det Insp Andy Coller said: "Our investigations are continuing with officers working closely with the Health and Safety Executive. However, at this time all indications are that this appears to have been a tragic accident.

"We have a specialist officer lending support to the family at this very difficult time and this will continue."

No arrests have been made.
