A SECOND man has been arrested following the car crash that killed Blyth man Mark Flynn three weeks ago.

Thirty-eight-year-old Mr Flynn died at the scene of the horror smash in which a red Volkswagen Golf left the A1058 Coast Road and collided with a crash barrier.

A 30-year-old man was arrested after the crash which happened at 7.20pm on Tuesday, November 27, on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and has been released on police bail.

Now another man, aged 24, has also been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and has been bailed pending further enquiries.

Police are keen to speak to anyone who was travelling south on the A189 Spine Road, the A19 or the Silverlink interchange between 7pm and 7.15pm.

Sergeant Mick Soulsby said: “We are still trying to trace witnesses who were in the area on the night of the crash and who might have seen anything.

“We are especially keen to hear from anyone who was driving on the A189 Spine Road, the A19 or the Coast Road that evening and who might have seen a red VW Golf and a black Citroen Saxo VTR.

“If anyone thinks they may have seen the two vehicles together in the time just before the collision, or if anyone thinks that have any information that could help us with our enquiries then I’d ask them to get in touch with us as soon as possible, anonymously if they prefer.”
