THE family of a man who died in a cycling accident in Saxmundham have paid tribute to him.

David Noy, 64, of Saxmundham, suffered fatal injuries in a collision with a car on the B1121 on Wednesday.

In a statement, his family said: “David was a loving brother and uncle who had a number of interests including cycling, bird watching and walking.

“He was also a very practical person and was proficient at woodwork and DIY.

“David was a cheerful and kind man, always willing to help his family and friends. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.”

Police were called to the B1121, which links Saxmundham to the neighbouring village of Benhall, at about 7.45am on Wednesday.

A search was launched for the driver of a car believed to have also been involved in the collision but which failed to stop at the scene.

The owner of the car, a 46-year-old man from Saxmundham, was later located by police at Ipswich Hospital.

He is currently undergoing treatment and assessment at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital.

Police would still like to hear from anyone who witnessed the accident.
