His wife Shamim Rashid, 66, died on Tuesday, August 30 after the BMW 1 Series she was driving collided with a Citroen C4 car and a road sweeper.

“Our enquiries into the crash are ongoing and we are appealing for the help of the public. The area was busy at the time and I would ask anyone who witnessed the crash and has not already spoken to police to get in touch.
