Two die on local roads...

Two people died on Lincolnshire roads last night - one of them a pedestrian walking near Crowland.

The collision happened on Whip Chicken Road, just off the B1166, near Crowland, at about 11.25 last night. The body of a man was later found in a nearby ditch.

He is believed to be a 33-year-old local man. The driver of the car was shocked but not injured.

The other fatal accident happened four hours earlier when a car left the A17 Heckington bypass, near Sleaford and hit a tree. The driver, a 47-year-old local man, was died at the scene.

So far 15 people have died on Lincolnshire's roads this year, compared with 28 at the same time last year.
