Tributes to Wisbech cycling club stalwart and much-loved husband, father and grandfather
Tributes have been paid to keen cyclist and 'much loved husband, father and grandfather' Paul Simms who died three weeks after being involved in a collision with a car.
Paul, 68, from Wisbech St Mary died in Addenbrooke's Hospital on Tuesday (14) from injuries sustained in the collision with a Vauxhall Astra in Roman Bank, Leverington at 6.30pm on April 23.
He was airlifted to the Cambridge hospital following the accident where he remained in a coma.
Paul was a club stalwart of the Wisbech Wheelers and they paid tribute to him describing him as "one of the best sprinters and finishers in the club. He also organised his own squad of veterans as well as many trips home and abroad for members. He will be sorely missed by the whole local cycling and racing community and our deepest sympathy goes to his family at this time."
Paul's family asked for privacy at this time but issued a short statement saying: "Paul was a much-loved husband, father and grandfather, he will be sadly missed."
A police spokesman said: "No arrests have been made in connection with the collision and an investigation continues".
Anyone who may have information relating to the collision should call police on 101.
