SUNDAY 1.30PM: A man in his early twenties has died after he was hit by a coach on the A16 in Cowbit on Saturday.

Police believe the man was walking along the road when he was struck shortly before 6pm and despite emergency services being called, he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The coach was being driven by a 62-year-old man from Surrey and contained a number of passengers, none of whom were injured.

They were later trasferred to specially hired taxis to continue their journey, but it is not known at this stage whether they were coming from Spalding Flower Parade which ended just minutes before the accident happened.

A Lincolnshire Police spokesman said they were in the process of contacting the dead man’s relatives but his identity would not be made public until Tuesday at the earliest.

Anyone who saw the man walking along the road anytime before 6pm yesterday evening or the collision itself should contact police on 101, quoting incident number 348 of May 4.
