The family of a 31-year-old man who died following a collision in North Lincolnshire have paid tribute to a "much-loved son, brother, partner and soon-to-be-dad".

Jack Quirke was tragically found dead near to Melton Road on the A18 near Wrawby after Humberside Police were called to the scene at around 9.45am on Saturday (May 11). Paying tribute, his family said: "Jack was a much-loved son, brother, partner and soon to be dad and we will do everything we can to keep his memory alive so his little one knows who he was.

“He had the cheekiest of grins, and his laughter filled the room wherever he was. He had such a fun-loving outlook on life and loved spending time with his family and friends. When he wasn’t socialising, he’d be on his PlayStation or working hard at his business he’d built.


“We cannot begin to put into words how heartbroken we are, and how much he will be missed by everyone."

Following lines of enquiry, a 51-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and other driving offences. He has since been released on police bail while enquiries continue.

A Humberside Police spokesperson added: "Officers continue to appeal for anyone who may have been in the area at the time and saw a man walking in the area, or anyone that has CCTV or dashcam footage which may assist with our enquiries to please contact us on our non-emergency number 101 quoting log 174 of 11 May.
