Clive Wyard, aged 74, was found collapsed on the driveway of his home in Valley Road at 7.15am on Friday 20th July 2018.  He had sustained injuries to his face and head and was taken to Ipswich Hospital, where he later died.  A post mortem examination was conducted on Monday 6th August and concluded that Mr Wyard died as a result of a head injury.
