Norfolk: Thousands Demand Improvements To A47 After Another Death

Thousands of people have signed up to a Facebook group demanding improvements which will make the road safer after another fatal crash yesterday.

The group's seen nearly three thousand people signing up in less than 24 hours. 

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. 

Emma Rose from Toftwood near Dereham speaks to Heart about why she set the group up:
