Northamptonshire Police are appealing for witnesses to contact them.

Earlier in the week, a police spokesperson said: "Police officers are appealing for witnesses after three people died following a collision on the A43 between Northampton and Kettering.

"At about 2pm on Tuesday, February 18, a red Vauxhall Corsa and a white Volvo Tipper lorry were travelling in the opposite direction, when they collided between Sywell and Hannington, near to the Sywell Range.

"Following the collision all three occupants of the Vauxhall Corsa - two men and a woman - were sadly pronounced dead at the scene."
