His wife Caroline has now released a tribute, describing her husband as the “most gentle person you could ever hope to meet”.

“It is with great sadness that on January 10, Andrew – my husband and father to our five beautiful and very brave children – lost his fight for life,” she said.

“Andy passed away in Southampton General Hospital as a result of the terrible injuries he sustained in the A360 road collision on 20 December.

Andy was the most gentle person you could ever hope to meet and his life was centred around his family.
