Family tributes have been paid to a "loving father and grandfather" who has died in hospital after an accident on the outskirts of Carlisle.
Pedestrian Gary Fell, 52, of Wigton, was struck by a lorry on the dual carriageway at Carleton, near M6 junction 42, last Saturday.
He suffered head, neck, arm, pelvis and chest injuries and was flown to Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary, where he died on Friday.
His family today paid tribute to a man who will be “greatly missed by all of his family and friends” - and revealed his kidneys had been donated to help save the lives of two other people.
Mr Fell was described as a “loving father and grandfather who leaves behind four children and three grandchildren.”
His daughter Linda said: “Rest in peace Dad, you will be deeply missed by us all. I know you will be at peace. Love you loads."
His daughter Kerry, added: “You will always be in my thoughts and I miss you loads. Love the quiet one.”
And his son Gary added: “You will be missed my best pal, especially our jokes. Love you loads."
Mr Fell had worked for 20 years at the town's Innovia factory.
The HGV driver was unhurt in the incident, which happened at 2.45pm and police are continuing to appeal for anyone who saw the incident to contact the northern roads policing unit on 101.
