The “heartbroken” family of 28-year-old Kyle Brooks who died on the A12 after being struck by a number of vehicles have paid tribute to the “wonderful, loving, kind hearted young man”.

Mr Brooks, of Broadfield, Harlow, was hit in the early hours of October 30 on the A12 northbound carriageway between Boreham and Hatfield Peverel.

His family have released the following statement: “Our son, brother, step son, step brother, cousin and uncle, Kyle, is loved and missed deeply by all his family and friends.

“He was born and raised in Harlow and attended Kingsmoor Primary School before moving on to Stewards Secondary School.

“He worked briefly at Stansted Airport and Sports Direct, before finding a job that he loved at Luminescence, Bush Fair, Harlow.

“His greatest passion was football; especially his beloved team Liverpool. He played in a number of local teams whilst growing up, and he had, just this year, returned to Sunday League Football playing for a local team Brays Athletic.

“Kyle loved music: he enjoyed listening to a wide variety of artists and loved going to festivals and socialising with his friends. Although his life has been cut tragically short; he touched the lives of many people. This has been evident in the outpouring of love we have received and is testimony to what a wonderful, loving, kind hearted young man Kyle was.

“Losing Kyle so cruelly is something we as a family, will not ever come to terms with, our lives are emptier without him, we are all heartbroken and struggling daily with the knowledge that he is not coming home. We will love him forever.”
