A Valley man killed after he was hit by a lorry on the A55 has been named.

Ciaran Murray died after he was struck by an HGV near the off-slip at junction 3 westbound on Thursday night (7th August).

Just moments before, the 35 year-old was caught up in a car crash involving a black Vauxhall Corsa.

Mr Murray’s family have described him as ”generous, loving, kind and sensitive”.

In a statement on Friday, they said: ”He was a much loved son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend and he will be deeply missed by everyone whose life he touched.

”As a family, we are understandably grief stricken, and we would like to thank those who have been in touch to offer condolences. However, we respectfully request that for now you allow us the opportunity to come to terms with this dreadful news in private.”

Earlier, police appealed for anyone who witnessed the car crash or the lorry collision to come forward.

Sergeant Raymond Williams from the Roads Policing Unit said: ”We are urging anybody who may have been travelling in the area around the time of the collision and who may have dash cam to contact us.”

”We are particularly keen on speaking to anybody who may have seen the Corsa being driven prior to the initial collision.”

Anyone with information should contact Roads Policing Unit officers in Llanydgai on 101, quoting incident reference no. 20000468294
