Police are hunting the driver of a car which drove away from a crash which has killed a 42-year-old pedestrian.

The accident happened in Bridge Street at 01:40 BST on Friday and the victim was taken to Addenbrooke's hospital in Cambridge with multiple injuries.

The man, from Bungay, died in hospital on Saturday evening.

Insp David Giles appealed for the driver to come forward adding: "I am in no doubt that the driver will have known what happened at the scene."
