Second tragedy strikes Deeping family...

Sad to hear of the death of Melvin Jepson, exactly four months to the day after his son was killed in a road accident near his Broadgate Lane home in Deeping St James.

Melvin, 53, was just out of hospital following triple heart bypass surgery when his teenage son Brendon died yards from their home in September.

Brendon had just popped down to Sam's newsagents in Rycroft Avenue on his moped to buy some cereal for his dad when he was in a fatal collision with a car.

Last week, Melvin collapsed at his garden gate - by coincidence he was on his way home after buying milk at Sam's. He died soon afterwards in hospital.

Funeral is on Tuesday - details in the Stamford Mercury.
