The family of a "loving" 55-year-old grandfather who died after a crash in Radcliffe have paid tribute to him.

Police were called to Water Street at around 6.35pm on Thursday, November 2 after a collision between a vehicle and a pedestrian.

The pedestrian, Anthony Haughton, was taken to hospital but was later pronounced dead.

Anthony's family said they are still coming to terms with the news and will "miss him forever".

In a statement, they said: “Anthony was a loving father, son, brother, grandfather and partner.

“He was taken from us too soon and we are still coming to terms with this devastating news.

“He overcame many obstacles in his life and had so much to look forward to watching his children grow up.

“His loss has left a hole in our lives and we will miss him forever.”

A 33-year-old man was arrested in relation to Anthony’s death on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, causing death while uninsured and drug driving.

He has since been released under investigation.

Police are continuing to appeal for witnesses with relevant information or footage to make a report.
