Stuart Anderson, from Blackpool, was involved in a collision with a silver Mercedes outside a pub in the Lancashire village shortly after midnight on Tuesday.

The 37-year-old suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene.

A statement from Mr Anderson’s family said: “Stuart was a much loved father of two children aged nine and 13.

“He had recently moved from Blackpool to Tarleton to progress his career as a chef.

“The family would like to thank the local community for their support at this difficult time and have requested that they are allowed time to grieve.”

The crash happened outside the Cock and Bottle pub in Church Road. The road was closed for four hours as police launched an investigation.

The Mercedes’ female driver escaped unhurt and was helping officers with their inquiries.
