A cyclist who was killed after he was hit by a bus has been praised as "one of the nicest guys".

Steve Moir, 50, of Plantation Road, Sawston, died in the crash on the guided busway in Trumpington, Cambridge, on Thursday afternoon.

Mr Moir, who worked at nearby Cambridge Assessment and was on his way home, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Bus company Stagecoach East said on Thursday its thoughts were with the family and it was assisting police.

Mr Moir, who was married and had three sons, had been involved in youth football for many years.

On Saturday, local youth matches held a minute's silence and Sawston United FC cancelled its game.

Sawston United said on social media: "His enthusiasm and tenacity to get things done, always with a smile, will be greatly missed."

"Our thoughts are with Elaine and the boys at this very difficult time," it said in an announcement on its Facebook page.

"Youth football has been deprived of a fantastic servant and genuinely one of the nicest guys we've known."

Saul Nassé, group chief executive of Cambridge Assessment, said: "I am very sorry to confirm that our colleague Steve Moir has died after an accident on the guided busway.

"Steve joined Cambridge Assessment in 1996 and he was a senior project manager in our premises team. He was a much-loved colleague and our thoughts are with his family."
