Tributes paid to police officer killed in A505 horror crash

A family have paid tribute to a “devoted” husband and father who died in a crash on the A505 in South Cambridgeshire[1] last month. Thirty-six-year-old police officer Russell Jones, from Royston, was riding his motorbike along the westbound stretch of the road[2] on March 28, at 12.35pm, when he was hit by a lorry.

Sgt Jones, who was a serving police officer with Hertfordshire Police, died at the scene. There was another vehicle travelling westbound[3] that was also involved in the crash, police said.

His family said: “It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Sergeant Russell Jones 2383. Russ was a beautiful human being, one of the best, who loved his job and believed in everything it stood for.”

The tribute added: “Russ was, and always will be, a devoted husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. And the hole he has left in all of our hearts will forever be there.”
