Flowers have been left at the scene of a fatal crash, which happened when a car left the road and ploughed into a ditch.
A message attached to the bouquet says: 'Darling Rob - we love you.'
Police said a Vauxhall Vectra was travelling along the A134 from Wereham, towards Whittington, just before 10pm on Wednesday, May 24, when it left the road near Stoke Ferry.
The crash happened on a slight right-handed bend close to the junction with Oxborough road on the approach to Wittington. The car came to rest on it's side in a 6ft deep ditch.
Four fire engines from King's Lynn, Downham Market, Thetford and Methwold attended the scene and used hydraulic rescue equipment to free the male driver out of the vehicle.
The driver was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn but later died. Police have not yet released details about the driver but confirmed he was alone in the car.
The news comes just one month after two people were left with serious injuries in a road collision on the same road last month. A blue Ford Mondeo travelling from Stoke Ferry and a grey Vauxhall Zafira, travelling in the opposite direction, were involved in a collision.
County councillor for Downham Market, Anthony White, who lives in Whittington, said: 'I feel sad for the family, until we know what happened and how it happened your thoughts just go to the family.'
