Stewart Macgregor

The wife of a man who died following a road traffic collision in Stevenage has paid tribute to him and appealed for others riding e-scooters to wear a helmet.

53-year-old Stewart Macgregor came off his e-scooter at the Broadwater Crescent junction with Woodland Way on Friday 24th September and died in hospital two days later.

Paying tribute to her husband, Stewart's wife Nicky, said: "I, our children and family are totally devastated that Stewart is no longer with us. He was a loving husband, son, brother, dad, uncle and friend, our lives will never be the same without him. He was such a caring loving person. I am totally devastated that I won't ever see him again, he had only popped out to see if the petrol garage had fuel.

Nicky added she hopes no other family has to go through what they are all going through.

Police are continuing to investigate what happened and are appealing for anyone with dash cam footage in the area at the time of the crash to get in touch.
