The family of Thomas Allen, who died in an accident involving several horses and cars on the A14 at Sproughton on Christmas Eve have paid tribute to him. They said:

"Words cannot express the loss and devastation we are all feeling. Thomas was simply The Perfect Son."He was a kind, thoughtful, happy young man, with a wicked sense of humour. He was just thrilled with the purchase of his new car. Sadly driving this would result in his early death.

"He was liked and loved by everyone who met him. He worked at Booker Cash and Carry and had recently been promoted. Life was going really well when he tragically died. He was on the road to great things."He was adored by his young sister and all our lives will never be the same."
