A second person has died, following a serious collision between two vehicles in Alpheton at the end of last week.

Emergency services were called out on Friday, August 31, at about 11.45am, to reports that a BMW and a Mini Cooper had crashed into each other on the A134, between Alpheton and Lawshall.

The BMW had been travelling southbound, from Bury St Edmunds towards Alpheton, and the Mini was travelling northbound from Alpheton to Bury, when the collision took place.

A woman in her 70s was pronounced dead at the scene, while two more people, who sustained severe injuries, were transported to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge for treatment.

One of the two people hospitalised, a man aged in his 60s, has since died.

The third person remains in hospital in a serious condition, having suffered life-changing injuries.

The road was closed in both directions for several hours while police, fire and ambulance crews attended to the scene. It later-reopened on Friday evening.

Suffolk Police is appealing for any witnesses to the collision, or who saw either vehicle prior to the crash, to come forward.

They would also like to hear from anybody who has dashboard-camera footage of the incident, or of the A134 between Sudbury and Bury St Edmunds, prior to 11.30am on August 31.

If you have information, contact the Suffolk Constabulary Serious Collision Investigation Team at Stowmarket on 101, quoting the incident reference code 131 of August 31, 2018.
