Officers believe car was driving towards King’s Lynn at time of crash

Police investigating a fatal collision on the A47 near Wisbech which claimed the lives of two sisters are appealing for help to trace the driver of a red car.

Tamzin and Jessica Portor, aged 10 and seven and from Sutton Bridge, died as a result of the crash on Thursday, December 27 at around 6.40pm.

The black Ford Focus they were travelling in left the road and overturned about 500 metres north of the Broad End Road junction as the vehicle travelled towards Wisbech.

Officers from Norfolk police’s Serious Collision Investigation Team are keen to speak with the driver of a red car seen travelling towards King’s Lynn around the time of the incident.

Anyone with information should contact senior investigator Steve Matthews at SCIT on 101.

The girls’ 12-year-old brother Liam suffered minor injuries in the accident, along with their 38-year-old father Allan Portor, who was the front seat passenger.

The 43-year-old female driver of the car, not the girls’ mother, also suffered minor injuries.
