A couple who died in a collision on Wednesday 29 January have been named by police as Lindsay and Georgina Wise, aged 85 years and 87 years from Michaelhouse Way, Stanton.

Emergency services were called at around 10:45am to the A143 at Great Barton near Bury St Edmunds to a report of a collision involving a Renault Megane and a HGV lorry. Two people within the car, Lindsay and Georgina Wise were pronounced dead at the scene.

Our family has yet to come to terms with the sudden loss of our parents, and our children's grandparents, in a tragic road accident. Kind, generous and unassuming, they brought us into this world and looked after us all, unfaltering, for more than 60 years. We now have to let them go, thankfully together, and with tremendous gratitude for their love, guidance and devotion.
