Kastytis Dambrauskas, of Cox Close, Wisbech, was involved in the collision on Weasenham Lane at around 8.30am on Monday July 16.

Paramedics and police were called but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Among the tributes are little candles and messages reading 'shine like the stars' and 'I love you to the moon and back'.

A GoFundMe page has also been set up by The Rosmini Centre who want to raise £3000 for the family of Kastytis.

They said: 'Words cannot express the devastation we are feeling following the loss of Kastytis. He was a very much loved son, brother, nephew and grandson. He will be sorely missed by all.

'He was a keen swimmer and loved being in the water. If he wasn't swimming he was listening to music.

'We are incredibly grateful for the help and support we have received as a family but we would now like to ask that we are left alone at this tough time to grieve in private.'

Hundreds of people took to social media following the accident to express their condolences to the family.
