Police are appealing for witnesses after a man died in a collision on the A47 at Swaffham yesterday

Officers were called to the scene at 1.44pm after a white Renault Master van, travelling towards King’s Lynn, left the road and collided with a tree.

Emergency services, including fire, ambulance and the air ambulance attended, but sadly the driver aged in his 40s was pronounced dead at the scene.

The road was closed while the incident was dealt with and later re-opened shortly before 6pm.
