Have your say

A MOTHER is mourning the loss of her ‘lovely boy’ after he died on Tuesday.

Police, ambulance and air ambulance were called to the home of Matthew Quinn, 36, in Lapwing Court, Mildenhall, just before midday.

Despite being resuscitated by paramedics at the scene, Mr Quinn later died at West Suffolk Hospital.

His mother, Hilary, said Mr Quinn had ‘Suffolk in his heart’ and loved his dog, Max.

She said: “He was a lovely boy. I just want to see him put his key in the door and come home.”

One neighbour, who did not want to be named, praised the work of paramedics at the scene who he said were ‘fantastic’.

Police were called at 11.45am with the air ambulance notified at 12.15pm. It reached the scene at 12.55pm after travelling from Cambridge.

A police spokesman said: “We gained entry to the flat and found the man in his 30s collapsed.

“The ambulance service attended and he was taken to the West Suffolk Hospital in a critical condition, but he later died at hospital.”

Residents reported seeing seven police cars in attendance and Lark Road was blocked off to enable the helicopter to land. Police are not treating the death as suspicious.
