Police are appealing for witnesses, after a man died following a collision on the Gamlingay Road between Gamlingay and Potton yesterday afternoon (Sunday).

At approximately 2.40pm, officers were called to an incident involving one vehicle which had collided with a tree.

Sadly, one man was pronounced dead at the scene. A four-year-old boy was also treated for minor injuries.

Road closures were in place in the surrounding area while officers dealt with the incident, but all have since reopened.
