His family have paid an emotional tribute to him, saying: 

“He was always reliable and one of the kindest, generous, most sincere people. He meant a lot to everyone and everyone counted on him.

“He loved his holidays and had a good sense of humour and this is a huge loss to everyone who knew and loved him. 

“We ask if you can respect the family at this sad time to allow us to grieve.”

Officers investigating the collision continue to appeal for any witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage to contact them.
