Paying tribute to Jack, his family said: "We write this with broken hearts. The loss of a son is something you could ever be prepared for.

"Jack was a much loved son, grandson, boyfriend and father. Everyone knew Jack and everyone loved Jack, how could you not! He was a joker, loved to have a laugh and a good time. He lived life to the full, and had done and been through so much in his young 23 years.

"We are absolutely devastated and there are not enough words to describe our pain. But he lives on through his son Harvey. Rest in Peace Jack, we love you more than you will ever know."

Police say they are continuing to investigate the exact circumstances of the collision.

Police ask people with any information who have not yet spoken with officers, to call 101, quoting the reference 44220068638.
