“No specific vehicle details are available and officers are now appealing for the driver and passenger to come forward to assist them with their enquiries.”
The family of Paul Jones issued a tribute to him earlier this month:
“Our dad Paul was a much loved man who was surrounded by his family and friends. He was always laughing and joking and made everyone he met feel at ease.
“He had a heart of gold and would do anything for anyone. He was a proud father of us two girls, and more recently a proud grampy.
“Paul was a very skilled joiner with a strong work ethic. Ever the perfectionist, Paul took great pride in his work and never had to advertise his business due to so many recommendations and repeat customers, many of whom became close friends.
“A dad, grampy, son, brother, partner and friend, Paul will be sorely missed by all those who knew and loved him.”
Anybody with information is urged to contact officers at the Roads Policing Unit on 101 or via the live web chat quoting reference number 20000709204.
