Floral tributes along one of the region’s roads tell a sad story after two lives were lost in separate accidents on the B1111 on Monday.

A man in his 20s died following a motorcycle crash on the B1111 in Gardboldisham at about 5.15pm. His body was found in a ditch by a member of the public, near the A1066 junction, while his bike, a blue Yamaha, was found nearby.

Another man, named by police on Wednesday as Stephen Sharpe, 59, from Bury St Edmunds, also died after his silver MG car collided with a garden wall on the B1111 at Barningham at about 2pm. The driver was taken to West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds where he was pronounced dead.
