Tributes have been paid to a "kind-hearted son and loving father" who was killed in a crash in Hemel Hempstead.

Jack Singleton was travelling along Redbourn Road at around 6.40am on Monday, June 17, when he was involved in a collision with two other vehicles.

The 35-year-old sustained serious injuries, and despite the best efforts of paramedics, he passed away at the scene.

Paying tribute, his family said: "We are totally heartbroken to confirm the death of Jack Singleton, eldest son of Carol and Chris.

"He was involved in a road traffic collision on his way to work, leaving for a normal day, never to come home.

"Jack was an amazing, kind-hearted son, a dedicated, loving father to Toby and Liam, a partner to Natalie whom he loved and adored, a brother to Lucy, Harry and Vanessa, and an uncle to Maisy and Ella. 

"The whole extended family, friends and work colleagues will sorely miss his kindness, love, support and generosity. We have a massive void in our lives that can never be filled.

"His life ended far too early, but he made the most of everything he did.  We are quite simply devastated."

Following the collision, a 23-year-old man from Berkhamsted was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, causing death while having no insurance or while disqualified, and fraud. He has since been released on police bail while enquiries continue.

Sergeant Timothy Davies, from the Road Policing Unit, added: "Our thoughts remain with Jack’s family and friends at this sad time.

"If you witnessed the collision or saw any of the vehicles travelling in the area prior to it, please report it to us."
