The driver of the Audi - who has been named as Tim Dyer, 38 - was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries but died in the early hours of yesterday morning (Monday).

In a tribute to him, Tim’s family said: “Tim was a much-loved son, brother and friend.”

His brother said: “Tim was the most loveable, charming, charismatic, smart and funny brother I could have wished for. Everybody he met would say they were lucky to have known him and he could brighten any room he walked into.

“He never missed an opportunity for a joke or a laugh and lived life to the fullest. Totally fearless, always well dressed, immaculately presented and exuding class, Tim will be sorely missed by all who knew him.”
