"He worked as a haulage driver out of Felixstowe Docks and was loved by all those who knew him, a gentle giant with a big heart and very family orientated.

"He was always full of life and would help anyone out with anything - he had a heart of gold. He will be greatly missed.”

Police are continuing to appeal for any witnesses to the collision, which involved two lorries on the eastbound carriageway, to come forward – including anyone who may have travelled along the road in either direction just prior to the incident and has a dash cam in their vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit either by emailing SCIU@suffolk.pnn.police.uk or calling 101, and quoting reference CAD 71 of August 25.
