The family of a man who was killed in a crash on the A505 near Melbourn yesterday has released a statement.

Vasile Chiorean, 48, of Old Rope Walk, Haverhill, was driving a Mitsubishi Shogun when he was involved in a collision with a lorry at around 3.45am.

Vasile, who was known as 'Cristian', sadly died at the scene.

His family said: "He was a loving father, husband and son with an infectious laugh and smile.

"There wasn't a room that he couldn't cheer up and I don't think anyone can say they've had a bad first impression of him.

"So many people will miss him and cherish him through the many great memories. Rest in peace Cristian."

Jose Galdon-Donate, 55, from Cartegena, Murcia, Spain, has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving.
