A 10-year-old boy who died following a collision with a lorry in Wisbech has been named.

Kastytis Dambrauskas, of Cox Close, Wisbech, was riding his bike when he was involved in the collision with a HGV on Weasenham Lane, at about 8.30am Monday morning.

He had been cycling to begin his last week of term before the summer holiday.

The road was closed in both directions until mid-afternoon while police investigators tried to piece together what happened.

Floral tributes had been placed at the scene this morning.

On social media hundreds offered condolences to the boy’s family.

One person wrote: “He was only 10 years old and he was on his bike going to school. That boy was my son’s friend and they live next to us. My son is his age; I still cannot believe this has happened.”

Anyone who witnessed the collision should contact the Road Policing Unit on 101.
