Suffolk police are appealing for witnesses to the accident, which happened on the B1115 just before 10pm yesterday.

It was reported that a silver Vauxhall Corsa had collided with a tree on Great Waldingfield Road, near to the airfield.

Emergency services attended the incident, including an air ambulance and two volunteer critical care paramedics from Suffolk Accident Rescue Service, but the driver and passenger died at the scene.

Flowers and cards have since been left at the side of the road and a tribute has been scratched into the tree itself.
