Man killed in Bedfordshire crash as police fear more casualties

Bedfordshire Police are investigating a road crash near Leighton Buzzard in which a man died

A man has died in a crash near a Bedfordshire village. Police fear there could be more casualties.

Police were called in the early hours of Sunday 10 October to reports of a serious single-vehicle collision near the A5. 

Emergency services attended the scene following reports of a car alight in a field close to the village of Heath and Reach near Leighton Buzzard.

Bedfordshire Police say they are working to find out what happened in this ‘very complex investigation’.

As no formal identification has taken place, specially trained officers are working with families they believe have a connection to the incident. 

Road closures have been put in place on the A5 from Hockliffe to Great Brickhill in both directions, including Woburn Road and Sheep Lane.

Roads are expected to be closed for some time.
