A MAN who died in a collision with a train on Saturday night has been named locally as 39-year-old Anthony Jenkins from Framlingham.

Mr Jenkins, of Bridge Street, was killed in the incident close to the level crossing at Bentley, near Ipswich, at about 8pm.

He was pronounced dead at the scene. British Transport Police said his death was not being treated as suspicious and a file was being prepared for the coroner.

A Toyota Yaris was found close to the scene which was believed to have belonged to Mr Jenkins.
