Police are appealing for witnesses after four people died in a collision in Worlington.

Police were contacted just before 8.15pm last night (Friday, July 17) to reports of a two car collision on the B1102 Freckenham Road at Worlington in Suffolk.

It is believed the vehicles collided head-on.

A man aged 77 and a woman aged 75 from Ely, in Cambridgeshire, in a Hyundai I30, and two men aged 24 and 28, both from Mildenhall in Suffolk, in a BMW M3, were pronounced deceased at the scene.

Chief Inspector Chris Spinks, head of roads policing for Norfolk and Suffolk Police, said: “Family liaison officers are in place with the families.

“The main purpose of our investigation is to provide answers for the families and evidence for the coroner.

“The most important thing is that witnesses come forward. We have got some witnesses and we have had people phone in to tell us they saw the vehicles before.

“My officers were at the scene last night. The weather and conditions were good. In terms of the cause of the collision, it’s still early days. We collected photographic and video evidence, as well as forensic evidence. All that will be brought back and analysed.”

Volunteers from Suffolk Accident Rescue Service attended the scene as well as officers from Suffolk Fire and Rescue service and the East of England Ambulance Service.

It is believed that the BMW was travelling in the direction of Worlington village and the Hyundai was travelling in the opposite direction when the collision occurred.

The road re-opened at 3.30am today (Saturday, July 18).

Police would like to hear from witnesses who may have seen the collision or the manner of driving of either of the two cars beforehand.

Anyone with any information should contact the Suffolk Serious Collision Investigation team on 101 quoting CAD 415 of July 17.
