The family of a man who died in a crash in Trafford has paid tribute to him as "a true gentleman".

75 year old Peter Heywood was a pedestrian and involved in a crash in Manchetser on Tuesday, where he was fatally injured.

His family say he was a well-respected man and was known by many in the Trafford area.

He was a true gentleman, very independent and a proud man. He will be missed by all who knew him.

We would like to thank everyone for the abundance of support that has been shown at this truly heart breaking time.
