A family have paid tribute to the most 'unique, amazing and fun loving man' who died in a collision in Bury on Tuesday 18 May.

At around 5.30pm, police were called to reports of a collision between a pedestrian and a car on Rochdale Old Road.

Emergency services attended and the pedestrian - who has since been formally identified as 37-year-old Anthony McKenzie - was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

The car driver stayed at the scene to assist with enquiries and no arrests have been made.

Paying tribute to Anthony, his family said: "Anthony was the most unique, amazing fun loving man who did as he pleased most of the time.

"But mainly he was the best daddy to his young boys; nothing meant more to him than his children, they were his entire world.

"He was just the most caring, humorous man, everyone loved him and we will all be forever thankful we had him in our lives."

Officers from Greater Manchester Police continue to appeal for any witnesses or anyone with video footage to get in touch.
