The father of Michael Cheshire, 29, has paid tribute to his son following his tragic death on 6 September in a road traffic collision in Vauxhall.

“A Dad to Isla Rose and Michael, a brother to Jessica and will be sadly missed by all those who had the pleasure to know him. The family are very grateful for the overwhelming support and sympathy of all those touched by Michael’s passing.”
