The family of a man who sadly died following a crash in Shenley have paid tribute to the "loved husband, father, brother, uncle and friend".

At around 7.20am on Wednesday, August 30, Justin was involved in a collision between a Volvo bus and a pedestrian on Porters Park Drive, at the junction with Grace Avenue.

Officers from the East of England Ambulance Service attended the scene, with assistance from an air ambulance, and the man in his 50s was taken to hospital for treatment.

A 57-year-old man was arrested soon after the crash, on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

He was released on bail while enquiries continue.

“Anyone who was fortunate enough to meet him will know he was a man who radiated strength, bravery and passion and found so much pleasure in giving back to others.

“Justin found meaning in everything he did, he approached situations with compassion, care, and respect for others.

“His sense of humour was second to none and there were so many small ways throughout a day he could make someone smile.

"We will continue as a family to honour Justin and will ask ourselves ‘what would Justin do?’ if ever in doubt.

“A man too good for this world, this is the only way as a family we can understand why he was taken from us too soon.”

PC Peter Hoddy added: “Our thoughts remain with Justin’s family and friends at this time.

“We are continuing to investigate the circumstances of the collision and are appealing for anyone who was in the area at the time and may have witnessed the collision or the events leading up to it to please come forward.

“Additionally, if you have a dash cam fitted, please review your footage as you may have captured vital evidence that could help us progress our enquiries.”
