TRIBUTES from around the world of cricket were flooding in today for legendary Yorkshire and England bowler Fred Trueman who has died after suffering from lung cancer.

TRIBUTES from around the world of cricket were flooding in today for legendary Yorkshire and England bowler Fred Trueman who has died after suffering from lung cancer.

Trueman, 75, was the first man to take 300 test wickets during his career - he played throughout the 1950s and 1960s.

After retiring from the sport he became a broadcaster and was known for his forthright views on cricket and other aspects of life.

Former colleagues and opponents have been quick to pay tribute to “fiery Fred” - and see Monday's Star for the views of Suffolk cricketers on the man who brought the game to the masses.
