Dishant Patel, 25, of Collingwood Drive in Longstanton, was travelling along the B1050, from the A14 at Bar Hill, in a black BMW Alpina at about 9.25pm when the collision happened.

It is believed the vehicle entered a right-hand bend and lost control, causing it to leave the carriageway and roll into a nearby field.

Emergency services attended and Mr Patel was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge where sadly he later died from his injuries.

The driver and front seat passenger, both men in their 20s, suffered minor injuries.
