Following the tragedy, Miss Warren told the EADT how the couple had been living a dream life after buying their Suffolk home last year.

She said: “We used to sit in the house and think we were the happiest people on earth. We thought we had everything - we had each other and now this wonderful home. Everything was going so perfectly and we were so happy but now it has gone.”

Work colleagues described Mr Bush as hugely popular and an “outstanding leader”.

Anyone with any information about the incident should contact PC Piskula on 0116 222 2222 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Police said a 55-year-old man, arrested in connection with the collision on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, has been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
