A SHELL-shocked Suffolk family were today coming to terms with the sudden deaths of two relatives just months apart.

Rosie Jay watched her mother die after a care home tragedy in May and is now reeling from the shock death of her 33-year-old son, David, from a brain haemorrhage on Monday.

The latest blow came just weeks after the family endured the inquest into the death of 88-year-old Florence Smith, who choked on sandwich at an Ipswich care home.

David Jay, who lived with his parents in Westbury Road, was a popular and passionate Ipswich Town fan.
