Craig Bedford, 37, from Ipswich, died on Saturday, June 8, as a result of injuries he suffered in a crash involving his black Honda motorcycle and a silver Audi A6 the previous day.

Mr Bedford was treated at the scene by paramedics, who carried out CPR for six minutes, before being rushed to Ipswich Hospital where he received emergency treatment.

He was then transferred to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridgeshire for further acute care and he was kept in the intensive care unit for 14 hours after the incident before he died.

The junction was closed by Suffolk police for several hours following the incident while crash investigators worked at the scene.
