A MAN killed after his car overturned in Marsh Road, near Dilton Marsh, at around 8.27pm on Sunday has been identified as Dale Patrick Perrett of Midsomer Norton.

Mr Perrett, 46, was trapped in an overturned silver three-door MG when emergency services arrived and attempted to free him, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

No one else was injured in the collision. A telegraph pole was knocked down in the crash, but BT said service to homes was not affected.

An inquest into his death was opened and adjourned on Wednesday.

The road was closed overnight while Wiltshire council cleared debris, and was reopened in the early hours of Monday morning.
