The man has been formally identified as Tadas Zaleskas, 26, and the woman, subject to formal identification procedures, is believed to be Nonita Karajevaite, 24.

Both Tadas and Nonita, an engaged couple originally from Lithuania, lived in Church Road, Emneth, Norfolk.

Tadas was employed as a factory worker in March and Nonita, a part-time beautician, was also employed as a factory worker in nearby Wisbech.

Their families have been informed and are being supported by police.

The couple both died after being struck by a car as they walked along the A47 east-bound carriageway at around 2.15pm on Sunday July 18.

Nonita’s death is being treated as suspicious following allegations she was forcibly pushed into on-coming traffic.

An inquest will be opened and adjourned in due course as the police investigation, led by the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team, into their deaths continues.

A police spokesman said they were “treating the woman’s death as suspicious following accounts by some witnesses that she may have been forcibly pushed into the oncoming traffic”.
