A man who died after a crash on the A47 earlier this week was hit by a Royal Mail van, the company has confirmed. 

The road was closed for nearly eight hours after a man in his 50s was hit by a red Vauxhall Vivaro at 11.15am on Monday. 

Emergency services attended the incident but the man died at the scene.

A Royal Mail spokesman has confirmed that the man was hit by one of the company's vehicles. 

They added that Royal Mail would be "engaging with the police and their investigation".
