Tributes have been paid to a serving Herts police officer and "devoted husband and father" who was killed in a crash on the A505 in South Cambs.

Russell Jones, 36, from Royston, was riding his motorbike along the westbound A505 near Fowlmere on Tuesday, March 25.

He was involved in a collision with a HGV travelling in the opposite direction. Another vehicle travelling westbound was also involved.

Sadly Russell died at the scene.

Hertfordshire Constabulary’s Deputy Chief Constable Bill Jephson said: "The investigation into the circumstances of the collision that led to the death of Sgt Russell Jones remains under investigation by the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit.

"In the meantime our focus is to ensure that his family and colleagues receive all the support they need at this difficult time."

A statement from Russell's family said: "It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Sergeant Russell Jones 2383 on Tuesday, March 28. 

"Russ was a beautiful human being, one of the best, who loved his job and believed in everything it stood for. 

"Russ was, and always will be, a devoted husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. And the hole he has left in all of our hearts will forever be there."
