A family has paid tribute to a “beloved” man who died in a traffic collision in Ulting, near Maldon.

Police have provisionally identified him as 53-year-old David Norris from Billericay, pending the opening of an official inquest.

Paying tribute, Mr Norris’ family said: “David will be missed forever by so many. He was a beloved life partner, stepfather, grandad and friend.

“He has been taken from us, and our lives have been forever changed.

“His lifelong passion for motorbikes, his thirst for knowledge, and his mantra of ‘if you have a pair of hands, there’s nothing you can’t do’ are just some of the things that made him great, and we are so blessed to have had him in our lives.

“This photo says it all...‘What a difference a Dave makes’.

“We will love you and miss you forever. Until we meet again...”
