Police Appeal witness

Bedfordshire Police are appealing for witnesses after two men were killed in a road traffic collision on Bromham Road, Bedford yesterday afternoon (Saturday).

The accident outside Bedford Sixth Form, involving a car and two pedestrians, happened just after midday.

Two men, both in their 60s, were pronounced dead at the scene.

A 32-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and is currently in police custody.

Sergeant Aaron Murphy from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit, said: “We are currently carrying out several lines of enquiry to establish the circumstances which led to this tragic incident.

“We understand there were several people in the area when it happened so we would urge anyone who witnessed the collision, or has any information or dashcam footage, to get in touch with us as this will greatly help our investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, or report online at quoting Operation Stardust.

Witnesses can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
