Two motorists die following accidents

A MAN has died following a crash on the Essex-Suffolk border.

TWO motorists have been killed after their vehicles were involved in accidents in Essex today.

A middle-aged man, understood to be local, was found dead in a BMW car discovered at about 6.15am in a ditch and in undergrowth beside Ashen Road, near the village of Clare.

The driver was the only person in the car and no other vehicles were thought to have been involved in the collision.

It is believed that the vehicle could have left the road as early as 11pm on Saturday night, but was not seen because it was in a ditch and hidden by bushes.
