A spokesman for Toyota Manufacturing UK said: “We can confirm that the lorry driver who died worked for Goldstar Transport, a logistics company based in Felixstowe.

“The driver was visiting the site in order to deliver a container of parts and to collect an empty container to return to Felixstowe. It was whilst making this delivery / collection that the accident occurred.

“Our thoughts continue to be with the driver’s family and friends and we extend our sincere condolences to them.”
