The family of a man who died after a crash on the Wirral say they are devastated by such a "sudden and tragic loss".

Police say Simon Jones died in hospital after an RTC on Market Street in Hoylake in November.

He was 46.

Simon's family have paid tribute to him as a thoughtful, caring and wonderful son, brother and uncle, adding "the world is a sadder place for us without him in it."

It is hard for us to describe just how much Si meant to others – he was such a loving and caring person who had a dry wit and an amazing sense of humour, but he was also a deep thinker and like a lot of people he had his own struggles in life. Since the accident our family have been overwhelmed by the lovely kind words and messages from so many of his friends from around the world – we realise, now more than ever, how loved and valued he was by those who knew him.

Family tribute

Simon was an organ donor, and his loved ones say they are "so proud of him" for being able to change and save other people's lives.

They added "We would really like to thank all those people who stopped at the scene of the accident and fought so hard to save him, we are so grateful to every single person who showed him kindness and compassion when he really needed it."
