A SUFFOLK lorry driver who suffered serious injuries after an accident left him trapped under his cab for seven hours has died in hospital.

Graham Rowe, 58, from Charsfield, died in the intensive care unit of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn yesterday.

Mr Rowe was driving a Leyland Daf lorry carrying fruit for a company based in Suffolk when it overturned on a slip road to the A47 bypass near King's Lynn in Norfolk just after 5.30am last Thursday.

Mr Rowe was trapped for seven hours after the accident and a team of 25 firefighters battled to rescue the driver who was trapped by his legs underneath the crumpled cab.
