A woman has died after a crash involving two tractors and a Ford Focus on a major road in Norfolk.

Police said one of the tractor drivers, a 40-year-old man from King's Lynn, was arrested on suspicion of death by careless driving and has since been released on bail.

Four Hazardous Area Response Team vehicles, two ambulances, an ambulance officer vehicle and the East Anglian Air Ambulance were called to the collision which took place on the A10 between Littleport and Downham Market on Tuesday (November 28).

Appeal

Sadly, the Ford Focus driver, a 68-year-old woman from Littleport, was pronounced dead at the scene. No one else was injured in the crash.

Detective Sergeant Craig Wheeler from Cambridgeshire Police 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."
