The family of a man who died in a road accident in Berkshire, have said they have "lost the sunshine" of their lives.

Matthew Webb, 37, from Pangbourne, Reading, was knocked down by a Peugeot 106 as he was walking in Station Road, Thatcham, on 14 November.

Terry Webb, his mother, said Matthew was "a man with a special gift for friendship. Everyone he met loved him".

"He was a 'Peter Pan' character, full of life, full of fun," she said.

His older brother, Gareth, said: "Matthew had recently taken stock of his life, was positive, working hard and was very focused.

"I can't express the depth of my sorrow. I don't know anyone with so many friends. He was so loved."

The accident happened at about 2048 GMT and Mr Webb died at the scene.

Police are still appearing for witnesses.
