The family of a man who died in the early hours of New Year’s Day in St Leonards has paid tribute to him.

Jamie Murray, 23, of The Marina, St Leonards died after being involved in a collision on the bike he was riding and a Ford Focus around 4am on Grand Parade at the junction with Warrior Square.

A statment from the family said: “Jamie was a fun-loving man and a loving son, brother and uncle. Jamie loved to get his own way and usually did, he was his own person. Jamie brought us many memorable times, he was a joker, he loved to go fishing and he loved his dog Rococo to pieces. Rococo was his shadow everywhere Jamie went, so did he. He will be missed by many as he made friends wherever he went. Nothing will ever replace Jamie he was one of a kind. Nothing will ever take away the heartache he has left behind, the only comfort we have now is that he is at peace with his dad, who he adored.”
