An 84-year-old man died when his blue Mercedes saloon was in a head-on collision with a brand new Mercedes coupe which still had trade plates.

It is thought the blue car was heading southbound on the A46 when it collided with the other Mercedes which was heading north towards Grimsby.

It has not yet been revealed where the new Mercedes coupe was heading with its trade plates.

The driver of the new Mercedes is understood to be in his 20s. He suffered minor injuries and was treated at Grimsby’s Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital. He has since been discharged from hospital and is due to be questioned by crash investigators.
