Man dies in road accident

POLICE are appealing for witnesses to an accident on Wisbech’s Churchill Road on Sunday in which a 22-year-old man died.

The accident happened at about 4pm when a Chrysler Cruiser was in collision with pedestrian Jamie Butcher at the Norwich Road junction of Churchill Road.

On Monday, the family of university student and former March Neale-Wade Community College student Jamie, of Stow Lane, Wisbech, were too upset to speak.

The 39-year-old driver of the Chrysler sustained serious injuries and is currently in the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn.

Churchill Road was closed from the Newcommon Bridge junction to the Freedom Bridge roundabout and traffic was diverted.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 0345-456-4564.
