Police officers were called at around 6pm on Tuesday 25 January 2022 to a report of a collision involving three vehicles on Clay Lane in Altrincham.

Emergency services attended and sadly the driver of one of the vehicles – a man aged 67 – was pronounced dead at the scene.

There have been no arrests and enquiries are ongoing.

His family said:  “Allan Paul Gray tragically passed away on the 25th January 2022 at 67 years of age, in Manchester where he was working away from his family.

“Beloved father to his three girls, Francesca, Olivia and Savanah, who were the light of his life.

“A proud grandad to Arabella, Jude and Reuben.

“Loved and dearly missed by his mother June Gray and cherished by his siblings John and Carol Gray.

“Born on the 14th May 1954 in Middlesbrough and raised there through his younger years, Allan had a love for motorbikes, martial arts, music and wildlife.  

“Allan moved to Norwich, where he settled down and raised his 3 daughters with Michele Gray, the mother of his children and the love of his life.

“Allan was the smartest, most hardworking, and proud man who would do anything for anyone.

The man who knew how to make anyone laugh with his silly sense of humour, the room would always light up when Allan was there.

“He will be remembered by all that knew and loved him, for his big heart, his charisma and his kindness.

“May he rest in peace”
