An investigation is underway after a man died following a road traffic collision in Stamford in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Police said in a statement released on Saturday: “At about 2.51am this morning a stationary Nissan Micra in Brazenose Lane, Stamford, was approached by police officers in connection with its manner of driving.”

Shortly afterwards, the vehicle was in collision with a wall in Wharf Road.

The driver, a 62-year-old man from the Stamford area, was pronounced dead at the scene.
