SUTTON BRIDGE: Red BMW sought in crash investigation

Have your say

Police investigating a fatal crash in which two sisters died are appealing for help in tracing a red BMW.

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 near a ditch on the A47 at Walsoken on December 27.

Officers from the serious collision investigation team put out an appeal earlier this month to trace the driver of a red car, which was seen travelling in the Lynn direction at the time of the incident.

Police have now learned that the red car was a BMW and are again asking to speak to the driver.

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 all suffered minor injuries.

The Highways Agency has announced plans to spend £170,000 on improving the Broad End Road junction.

Anyone with information should contact PC Ian Thexton on the 101 non-emergency number.
