Funeral service for Luke

The funeral service for 24-year-old Luke O’Sullivan, who died in Addenbrooke’s Hospital following a road crash near Exning, will be held at noon today at Newmarket’s Roman Catholic Church.

Luke, a former pupil at St Louis Primary School and Newmarket Upper School, lived in Carter Street in Fordham. He had been working for Rossdales Equine Hospital and Diagnostic centre in Exning.

He sustained critical injuries when his Peugeot 206 hit a lamppost in Cemetery Hill at around 4.35am on Easter Saturday, April 19. He was treated in Addenbrooke’s critical care unit but never recovered consciousness and died six days later.

An inquest into his death is due to be opened and adjourned today in Bury St Edmunds. A full hearing will be held at a later date.
