A potentially vital witness is being sought by police after a 74-year-old motorist was killed in a crash with a lorry in Lincolnshire.

Richard Harrison, from Boston, was driving on the A16 on 4 April, when his car was in a collision with an HGV.

Police want to trace a silver estate car seen travelling towards Boston at the time of the crash.

A 52-year-old man who was driving the Spanish-registered Renault lorry was arrested and bailed until June.

The man was held on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

The force said the silver car was not involved in the crash but the driver could be an important witness.

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

The family said in a statement: "We are completely heartbroken and devastated but wish to thank everyone from the emergency services who attended the accident and tried to help him."
