THE son of a 75-year-old man who was crushed to death by a lorry in Sudbury town centre has spoken of his dismay after flowers laid in his memory vanished.

Frederick Collins, of Kersey Avenue in Great Cornard, died last April after falling under the wheels of a lorry as he attempted to cross Market Hill at the pedestrian crossing.

A year on from his father’s death, his only son, Mark, from Raleigh Road, Sudbury, left flowers close to the scene of the accident – by St Peter’s – but says he was shocked to discover his floral tribute missing only hours later.
