A man who died after being struck by a car on the A66 through the Lake District has been remembered as "larger then life".

Three people were arrested and released under investigation over the crash.

The family of James Greenwood said: “It is with great sadness that Jimmy was tragically taken from us. A keen biker who had a larger than life personality, with family and friends at the centre of everything he did. His death has left a hole in our family that will never be filled.”

A Cumbria Police statement read: "The collision occurred shortly after 12.30am and involved a silver BMW 1 Series and a pedestrian. The pedestrian was killed in the collision and has been formally identified as James Greenwood, 61, of Market Drayton, Shropshire.
