The family of a man who died following a fatal collision in Widnes have paid tribute to him.

Paul Weaver, 59, from Latchford, died on Friday 8 February following a collision on Ditton Road, Widnes.

Paul’s family said: "Whether you knew Paul for four years or 40 years, he grabbed a piece of your heart by being just what he was, a gentle giant who was kind, loving and full of fun.

“He was a bit crazy but that's what made him unique and it is unbelievable that he has been taken from us so tragically and suddenly.

“The world is now a darker place without him and our family gatherings will not be the same; especially for the little ones who gravitated to Paul because he was just a big kid himself and we all loved him.

“Rest in peace Paul and ride high amongst the stars.”
