Police are appealing for a woman to come forward as a potential witness after a man collapsed and died while working on a road in Lidgate.

Officers have been investigating the circumstnaces surrounding the death of Aidan Gallagher, 37, who was reported to have collapsed on the B1063 near to a section of road works on Tuesday May 13 at 10.30am.

Mr Gallagher, who had been working on the road, was taken by land ambulance to Addenbrooke’s Hospital but died en-route.

A Home Office post mortem exam found he had suffered internal injuries ‘consistent with an impact’.

During their enquiries, police officers spoke to two men who were working on the road the same day. They said that a woman, believed to be driving a car, spoke to them to make them aware that someone had collapsed on the road.

Police would like to trace this woman as she may be able to help with their enquiries.

The woman stopped on the B1063 sometime between 10.15am and 10.30am on Tuesday May 13.

As well as identifying the woman who stopped, officers are keen to speak to anyone who had been driving along the road at the time and may have witnessed the collision or who saw any vehicle with damage that may have been caused by a collision to get in contact.

Anyone with information should contact the Major Investigation Team on 101.
