A family is mourning the tragic death of a father-of-three who “never failed to help anyone” after a collision involving a bin lorry in a cul-de-sac in Chelmsford.
Emergency services were called to Osea Way, off Havengore in the Springfield area of the city, to reports of a collision involving a man and a bin lorry at around 9.05am last Friday (December 8).
Steve Bishop, 37, died at the scene of the incident, Essex Police confirmed today.
In a statement issued by Essex Police, his fiancé Nickie said: “Steve was a wonderful fiancé, father, son, and friend to us all.
“Words will never express how much he will be missed.
“Steve always put others first. He never failed to help anyone. He was the life and soul of the party.
