Police are appealing for a woman to come forward as a potential witness after a man collapsed and died whilst working on a road in Lidgate.

Police were called by the Ambulance service at approximately 10.30am on May 13 with a report that a man had collapsed on the B1063 near to a section where road works were taking place.

The man, 37 year old Aidan Gallagher from Ipswich, who had been working on the road works was taken by land ambulance to Addenbrooke’s Hospital but died en route.

A Home Office post mortem examination held on May 20, found that Mr Gallagher had internal injuries consistent with an impact.

Officers have been carrying out inquiries to establish the circumstances of Mr Gallagher’s death and have spoken to two men who were working on the road the same day, who have said that a woman, believed to be driving a car, spoke to them to make them aware that someone had collapsed on the road.

Police would like to trace this woman as she may be able to help police with their inquiries.

The woman stopped on the B1063 sometime between 10.15am and 10.30am on Tuesday, May 13.

As well as identifying the woman who stopped, officers are keen to speak to anyone who had been driving along the road at the time and may have witnessed the collision or who saw any vehicle with damage that may have been caused by a collision to get in contact.

Anyone with information should contact the Major Investigation Team on 101.
