Have your say

A MOTORIST pronounced dead after a road accident in Sunderland has been named.

George Spurs, who was 59 years old and from Silksworth, died in hospital after his vehicle was involved in an incident on Silksworth Lane at about 4.45pm last Monday.

A post-mortem examination concluded that Mr Spurs, who has been described as a “gentle giant,” died from a heart attack rather than as a result of the accident.
