A heartfelt tribute has been shared by the relatives of a committed husband and father who tragically lost his life in a collision on the A505 in South Cambridgeshire last month.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
