THE B1062

It is a 50mph road about five miles long which connects Beccles and Bungay via Shipmeadow and Barsham, and is a well-known hotspot for accidents.

It has claimed the lives of many road users and a pedestrian who was hit was the most recent fatality.

On New Year's Eve 2022, there were three crashes on a flooded stretch of the road after cars aquaplaned - with one car even flying into a woman's home.
