David Stokes has been described as a "true family man".

An RAC recovery worker killed when he was hit by a car while repairing a vehicle in Nottinghamshire has been described as a “true family man”.

David Stokes, 33, from Chellaston, Derby died when he was hit by a car while repairing a vehicle on the A617, in Rainworth, Nottinghamshire, on Friday 15 June.

In a statement Mr Stokes’ family said: “Words can’t express how much we love and miss him…

“We appreciate all of the heartfelt messages of condolence we have received but we’d ask people to allow the family time to grieve at this difficult time.”

“Terrible shock”

RAC chief executive Dave Hobday said: “David was a dedicated, much loved and valued member of our team and his death has been a terrible shock to all of us at the RAC.

“We continue to work closely with his family and will do everything we can to support them at this incredibly difficult time.

“His death has sparked an enormous reaction from colleagues, friends, other breakdown patrols and recovery workers.”

The RAC held a minute’s silence at 11:00am this morning in memory of Mr Stokes.

Nottinghamshire Police said it was appealing for any witnesses or motorists with dashcam footage of the collision to come forward.

    It seems we’ve lost another member of the roadsides. I’ve done many years rescueing motorists and by doing so, I’ve risked my life due to stupid drivers not paying attention. We need to educate drivers or make a law so the roadside teams are safe.
