Norfolk's Chief Constable pays tribute to PCSO killed in a road crash on her way to work.
Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) Sandra Greenacre died in a collision on the A149 at Sandringham on her way in to work at Hunstanton Police Station.
PCSO Greenacre, 51, known as 'Sandi', was married with four children and a well known face in the local community where she worked in the Hunstanton, Burnham Market and The Woottons areas.
Her death this morning brings to five the number of people killed on the county's roads in a 48 hour period following the deaths of four people at separate collisions in Hockering on Saturday and Hevingham on Sunday.
Chief Constable Phil Gormley said: "We were saddened and shocked to learn of the death of our colleague PCSO Greenacre in a road traffic collision earlier today.
"A number of families, friends and colleagues are today dealing with the devastating loss of a loved one from a weekend which has seen a shocking level of tragedy on Norfolk's roads. We extend our sympathy to them all at this time."
PCSO Greenacre was driving towards Hunstanton on the A149 at Sandringham when her red Peugeot 107 was in collision with black Peugeot 206 travelling in the opposite direction. She was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.
In a tribute from colleagues, Hunstanton Inspector Debbie Gunnill said: "Sandi was a valued and well liked member of the Hunstanton team and her bubbly personality will be missed. She was totally committed to her role, cared about victims and would do as much as she could to resolve community issues. The public respected her and this was borne out with the positive comments and number of thank you letters she received. Our thoughts are with her family at this time."
Police Family Liaison Officers are working to support family members at this time.
While investigations into the cause of all three collisions remain on-going at this time, police are again warning motorists to drive cautiously in the adverse weather conditions which are expected to continue throughout this week.
