Phillip Beeton, 50, of Feltwell Road, Southery, died when the blue Citroen Relay van he was driving was involved in a collision with a tipper lorry.

A male passenger from the van remains in a critical condition at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, in Cambridge.

A 58-year-old man from Huntingdon was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and has been released on police bail until December 9.
