“He was very supportive to everybody who knew him and couldn't say no to helping out with anything.

"He was an active member of the community who was involved with local groups and had recently helped Team Harrow of The Challenge Network, helping to shape the lives of hundreds of young people within the local community.”

The incident occurred at around 6.50am this morning and the 51-year-old, originally from Waterford in Ireland, died at the scene.
