AN American airman who received critical injuries in a motorbike crash nearly a month ago has died in hospital.

Master sergeant Scott Tusler, from RAF Lakenheath, was riding his Harley Davidson bike along the A134 in Bury St Edmunds on December 3, when he was involved in a single vehicle collision.

He was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital, in Cambridge, suffering with serious head injuries and breathing difficulties.

But the American airbase has announced the 43-year-old, who had served with the air force for the past 21 years and was assigned to the 48th Civil Engineering Squadron, had died at the weekend.

A spokesman said a memorial service was being planned for later this week.
