The family of a man who died after a collision on the A45 have paid tribute to him and said “he will live on” in their hearts.

Jack Bristow, or Irchester, has been described as “unique” by his loved ones following his death on July 12.

His partner Pearl was too distraught to comment, but a close family member said: “Jack will live in the hearts of all those who knew and loved him and it’s a real tragedy to lose someone who was so unique like Jack.

“Our family and his two children will struggle to come to terms with it for a long time to come.”

Following the collision, a 42-year-old man from Northampton was arrested and charged with causing death by careless driving, failing to stop at the scene of an accident and failing to report an accident.

The man has been bailed to appear at Northampton Magistrates Court on Thursday August 9.

Police are appealing for anyone who may have been driving along the A45 from the M1 at junction 15, towards the Queen Eleanor roundabout at 4am on July 12 to come forward

They would particularly like to speak to anyone who may have seen a white Land Rover with trailer, parked at the side of the road.
