Tributes have been paid to a 25-year-old male who died following a crash in Oulton yesterday.


Daniel Casteleiro, from Payne Street, Lowestoft, was killed yesterday morning when his Renault Clio was involved in a single vehicle collision on Parkhill, Oulton, on his way to work in Blundeston at around 8.25am.

It is thought the Mr Casteleiro, from Payne Street, Lowestoft, lost control of the vehicle while travelling along Parkhill and it overturned.

He was pronounced dead at the scene. No other people were in the car.

In a statement, his family said: “Daniel’s world revolved around his work and his family, who would hear the tales every evening of what he had done during the day. He was so proud of his achievements.

“He had a heart of gold but wore it on his sleeve. Daniel loved everyone, he was so honest and loyal, such a trustworthy young man.

“A dear grandson, loving brother, uncle, cousin and loyal friend, someone to be proud of. Never to be forgotten.”

A section of the road was closed for six hours while forensic collision investigators carried out their enquiries to establish a cause of the crash and debris was cleared from the area.

Police have also renewed their appeal for witnesses and have asked anyone with information to Suffolk police’s Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101, quoting CAD 0095 of 23/08/2014.
