Police are now able to name a motorist who died in a road traffic collision at Stratford St Mary last week.

Police were called at 7.47pm on Monday 2nd August 2021 to a report of a single vehicle collision on the A12 northbound carriageway at Stratford St Mary, at the junction of the B1068.

A silver Skoda Fabia was involved and the driver, a woman in her 20s and the sole occupant of the vehicle, died at the scene.

Pending formal Coroner’s inquest proceedings, police have provisionally identified the deceased as 26-year-old Heather Loveridge, known by family and friends as Meg, who was from Colchester.

Meg’s family have asked Suffolk Police to issue the following tribute on their behalf:

“Meg was a loving partner, daughter, a sister, a friend and a carer. Loved by all that knew her and will be missed by so many, especially her dog Jessie that had been by her side from a puppy and was there to keep her warm until the very end. Sleep tight Meg, we all miss you so much.”

Police are still appealing for any witnesses or anyone with dash cam footage that captured the collision to come forward and contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, quoting CAD reference 343 of 2 August 2021.
