Dorset Police received a report at 9.15pm on Friday 29 September 2023 of a collision involving a tractor and a blue Audi A3 on Mapperton Hill in Milton on Stour.

Very sadly, the male driver of the Audi – aged in his 20s from Wiltshire – was pronounced dead at the scene. His family has been informed.
