Three people have been arrested after a fatal crash in Bridport.

A 64 year-old man died after his pick-up truck collided with a convertible on Sea Road South, close to Crown roundabout.

Two men aged 30 and 33 and a 27-year-old woman, all from Bridport, have been arrested and are being questioned.

The A35 Sea Road South remains closed while crash investigators examine the scene. It is expected to open later this morning to allow a full and thorough examination in the daylight.

I am appealing to anyone who witnessed the collision or the manner of driving of either vehicle immediately before the incident to please contact Dorset Police. I would also ask anybody who was in the area at the time to consider any dashcam or CCTV they may have which could assist us in our investigations.
