A 74-year-old man who was killed in a crash with a lorry in Lincolnshire has been named by police.

Richard Harrison, from Boston, was travelling from work in a Ford Focus on the A16 at 12:50 BST on Thursday, when his car collided with an HGV.

Mr Harrison's family said they are "completely heartbroken" by his death.

A 52-year-old man who was driving the Spanish-registered Renault lorry was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

Mr Harrison, of Friar Way, was married and had three daughters.
