On Christmas Day 2002, Spalding residents, Chris Mallet, uncle of EastEnders' star Steve McFadden, and his wife Anne, were killed when their car was in collision with a speeding BMW at Holbeach in Lincolnshire.
A Polish illegal immigrant, Wlodzimierz Rogowski, was trying to escape from police and was almost five times over the drink-drive limit when he killed newlyweds Chris and Anne. He was driving at 75mph on the wrong side of the road, at night, without lights. Nor did he have any insurance or an MOT for his vehicle.
Nor should he have been here as his work permit was bogus.
Chris and Anne are pictured below:
