Family statement following Ricky Newton inquest

Please find below a statement from the family of Ricky Newton whose inquest hearing took place yesterday, Thursday 19 October.

Ricky died following a fatal collision on The Street at Starston near Harleston on Saturday 21 January 2017.

Ricky's fiancée Hannah Briggs and his sister Carly Newton said: "Whilst we, as Rik’s family and friends are all shocked about the findings of the investigation, we will always remember Rik for the kind, loving and unique person that he was. 

"We all miss him terribly, we always will and none more so than his children.

"Nothing we can say or do will change what has happened but we do not want any other family to have to endure what we have been through over the past few months.  Please don’t take risks whilst driving and please don’t think it won’t happen to you."
