Tributes have been paid to a father of two who was killed after being hit by an ambulance on the A34 near Oxford.

Adrian Bourne, 35, from Chippenham in Wiltshire, was described as a 'kind, generous and loving man' who was 'tirelessly positive and full of life'.

He was struck on the northbound carriageway of the A34 on 29 November.

It happened between the junctions for Peartree and Islip in Oxfordshire at about 3:20am

His family has issued a statement. His partner did not want to give her name but said “Ade loved life and adored his family, especially our two boys more than anything in the world."

"He took his job very seriously and genuinely loved what he did. Outside of work he was a kind, generous and loving man; he never had a bad word to say about anyone, always looked for the positive in things and had the ability to make everyone around him smile.
