Tributes are being paid to a man killed in Coldnailhurst Avenue yesterday morning.
61 year old, Graham Haygreen, from Halstead, died after the blue Peugeot panel van he was driving hit a lamppost.
His wife Sylvie has described him as: 'Dearly-loved husband, father, son, brother-in-law and friend to everyone who knew him.
'He worked as an electrician which he had done all his working life. When Graham was not working he enjoyed relaxing with his family.
