Tributes have been paid to a couple in their 80s who died in a crash involving a HGV.

Police have named Lindsay and Georgina Wise, of Michaelhouse Way, Stanton, aged 85 and 87 respectively, as the victims of a collision on the A143 in Great Barton on Wednesday.

The couple were killed when their Renault Megane was involved in a collision with an HGV owned by Neil Bomford Haulage at around 10.45am.

Their two sons, Jeff and Laurie, have released a heartfelt tribute to their parents.

It said: “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.”
