Police investigating the car crash which claimed the lives of two young sisters have received just one call to their appeal to trace a car.
Sutton Bridge girls Tamzin, 10, and seven-year-old Jessica Portor died in Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital after a Ford Focus rolled and ended up in a ditch on the A47 at Walsoken on December 27.
On Thursday last week, police put out an appeal to find a red car which was seen travelling towards Lynn at the time of the crash.
But officers say they have received just one call.
Steve Matthews, a senior investigator with the serious collision investigation team, said: “Whilst I would like to thank the media for publicising our appeal following this tragic collision, sadly we have had a disappointing response to it.
“I would urge anyone who was using the A47 on the early evening of December 27, to think back and contact us if they saw a red car, or were driving a red car, in the Walsoken area.”
Tamzin and Jessica, who attended Sutton Bridge’s Westmere School, suffered head injuries as a result of the crash, which happened at about 500 metres north of the Broad End Road junction, at about 6.40pm.
They are believed to have been travelling to the cinema with their father Allan, 38, his partner, Marie Easter, and their 12-year-old brother. They suffered minor injuries.
Anyone with information should call Steve Matthews on the 101 number.
