His family have paid tribute to him, saying: “Robert was the son of Lorraine and Rickie. He had four sisters and one brother who he sadly leaves behind.

“Robert was a handsome young man who had so much to look forward to. He was extremely kind, generous and energetic.

“He always wanted to help others and was very generous with his time - he really did have a heart of gold.

“Robert was like any other young gentleman - he loved cars and loved to drive and was very pleased at recently getting a promotion in his job as a local tyre fitter.

“He was always looking to develop his skills and really wanted to succeed in his career.

“We would like to thank the emergency services for their attendance at the tragic scene of the collision.

“Our sad loss has created such a huge void in our lives which will never be filled and shall remain with us forever.

“Sleep tight, Robert, from all your loving family in North Wales, Rugby and Coventry.”

Officers continue to appeal for witnesses to the two-vehicle crash which involved a white coloured Vauxhall Astra and a heavy goods vehicle on the eastbound carriageway of the A55 during the early hours of yesterday morning.

“I am also keen to hear from anyone who may have been travelling on that section of the A55 just prior to the collision and who may have dashcam footage.”
