Members want the area around Drayton Hall Lane and Dereham improved after the 69-year old man died yesterday afternoon (Thursday, May 16).

The man, believed to be from Norwich was killed after a collision with a lorry just before 3pm when his silver Ford Focus was in a head-on collision with a lorry.

It's the seventh death on the road in the last 6 months.
