A woman has died after a crash involving two tractors and a Ford Focus on a major road near Downham Market.

The crash happened at around 2.50pm on Tuesday on the A10 at Southery.

Four Hazardous Area Response Team vehicles, two ambulances, an ambulance officer vehicle and the East Anglian Air Ambulance were sent to the scene.

The Ford Focus driver, a 68-year-old woman from Littleport, was pronounced dead at the scene.

One of the tractor drivers, a 40-year-old man, was arrested on suspicion of death by careless driving and has since been released on bail.

Detective Sergeant Craig Wheeler said: “A woman has tragically lost her life in this collision and my thoughts are with her family and friends at this very difficult time.

“I am appealing to anyone who may have seen the collision, or any of the vehicles prior to it, to please get in touch.”
