A man in his early 20s remains in a critical condition this afternoon after suffering 'serious' head injuries as this sports car left the road and embedded itself in a family home in Carlton Colville.

Lewis Richardson, of Carlton Colville, is fighting for his life at the Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge following the crash in the early hours of Sunday morning.

A police spokesman said at 4.30pm today (Monday) that he remains in a critical condition.

The spokesman added: 'No officers have been at the scene today and the collision investigation is ongoing.'

On the social media site, Facebook, the group #prayforlewis has been set up as prayers went out for a man described by friends as 'loved, liked and respected by so many in this town.'
