A 56-year-old man has died from injuries suffered in a collision in Kennett last week.

Mr Stephenson, a lorry driver for Turners of Soham, was on his way to work when the incident happened.

Police, fire and ambulance all attended and Colin was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, in Cambridge, with serious injuries although at the time they were not thought to be life threatening.

Colin remained in hospital until Sunday (May 10) when he died.
