Tributes lay at side of road where two men were killed in March collision

TEAR stained tributes and flowers line the road where two people were killed on Sunday morning.

Dominic (Dom) Illife, 24, of Boadicea Court, Chatteris, was on his way home with his sister’s boyfriend, James Kiely, when they were killed after the collision with a Vauxhall Astra van shortly after 3am on Wimblington Road, March.

Dom’s mother Samantha Taylor visited the site with her husband Paul Stratford, vice principal at Neale-Wade Community College, Dom’s father Bill and sister Abigail Iliffe.

Since Sunday morning friends and family have laid tributes to the pair at the site they were killed:
