Family Tribute To Brighton Man Killed By Lorry

The family of a man who died after being hit by a lorry following a fight in Brighton on Sunday (10 April) have paid tribute to him.

Emergency services were called to Western Road near the junction of Temple Street at 2.40am. The victim, Georgi Yaschuk, 23, of Cambridge Road, Brighton, was sadly dead at the scene.

His family said: "Georgi was a clever and kind hearted cheeky chappie. He was always happy and enjoyed playing basketball on the beach in the summer.

"We are all shocked and saddened by the tragic news and ask as a family that we are left alone to grieve in peace."
