A motorist who died five days after his car left the road and overturned was a student at what is now Bourne Academy, it has emerged.

Harry Jellicoe (26), of Corby Glen, near Bourne, was fatally injured after an MG he was driving crashed on the A151 Station Road, Corby Glen, on Sunday, October 16.

No other vehicle was involved in the crash which claimed the life of Mr Jellicoe who was a former student at Robert Manning College which became Bourne Academy in September 2011 after being granted academy status.

Chris Brown, who went to school with Mr Jellicoe, said: “Harry was in my year at school and I remember him as such a kind and fun lad to be around.

“He was one of those lads that everyone liked and wanted to be around.

“I had some really good times with him and I am heartbroken to hear this sad news.”

Harry Jellicoe was the heart and soul of any room he entered - a positive person, 100 per cent of the time.

“My thoughts are with Harry’s family at this sad time.”

Police have renewed an appeal for anyone who saw the MG either at, or leading up to, the accident which happened at about 1.45pm on October 16 to call 101.
