A 19-year-old woman has died in hospital after the moped she was riding collided with a car on the A52 in Wyberton Fen.

The woman was fatally injured after a moped and an Audi A7 collided at about 7am on Thursday.

The teenager was taken to Boston Pilgrim Hospital with very serious injuries and then transferred to Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham.
