A MAN who died after a three-vehicle crash last week has been named.

Denis Sporle, 80, from Barsham near Beccles, died after the road traffic collision in Bungay on Friday.

Police were called just before 1.15pm following reports that three vehicles - a white Vauxhall Corsa, a silver Ford Fusion and a blue Volvo V40 - had been in collision in Beccles Road, Bungay.

The driver of the Corsa, Denis Sporle, was taken to James Paget Hospital in Gorleston but died the same day.

Officers have spoken to a number of witnesses but still want to hear from anyone who was in the area and saw the vehicles prior to, or when the accident happened.

Anyone with information should call Pc Danny Ormes at the Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101.
