THE family of a man who died following a collision on the M4 last Thursday have paid tribute to the ‘young at heart’ grandad.

Simon Clover, known as Clodge to his family and friends, 50, from Cardiff, was the passenger of a roads maintenance vehicle that was involved in a four-vehicle collision on the westbound carriageway of the M4 between junctions 17 and 18 shortly after 3.30am. He sadly died at the scene.

His family have released the following tribute:

“Clodge was a loving husband, father and bampy. He was young at heart and such a family man who absolutely adored all his children and grandchildren.

“He was one in a million and had lots of friends who adored him.

“He was a hard worker and quite often worked 7 days a week. He was a keen gardener, loved a game of poker, fishing and going down the river on a kayak.

“He was also a keen Arsenal supporter and would try and go to the matches with his son.”

The family would also like to ask for privacy at this devastating time for them and the thoughts of everyone at Wiltshire Police are with them.
