The family of a Bury St Edmunds man who died in a car crash in Thetford have paid a tribute to him.

Tim Edwards, who was 61 and of Olle Close in Bury St Edmunds, died at the scene of the crash on the A134 Barnham Cross Common on Monday morning.

A statement from his family said: “Tim was a much loved husband of Julie, father to Sarah, Maria and Terry, brother to Terry and devoted granddad to Mia.

“He was a sociable character, well known in town through both his love of real ale and his days as a rhythm guitarist with Tutch and later Nelsons Column.

“Recently Tim was self-employed but he had previously had a successful career as a qualified engineer starting at Woollatt and Mitchell and going on to work as a buyer at Vitality Bulbs, Heeco and AMOT Controls.”

Police are continuing to appeal for witnesses to the collision which involved three cars at around 6am on Monday morning.
