The family of Mr Hadley, who was known as Norman, have issued the following tribute:

“Loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. 

“Norman was a selfless person who would do anything to help others, always happy to be active and busy doing little jobs even at 93-years-old. 

“He was very well known and loved by the local community. 

“To lose him in such tragic circumstances has come as a massive shock to all the family. It will leave an emptiness that will never be filled. We are completely devastated.” 

Officers from the force’s collision unit are investigating the circumstances of the collision and are appealing for witnesses to get in contact.

They are particularly interested in hearing from anyone who may have dash cam footage or CCTV of the area at the time.
