21-year-old Bogdan Chirita, who had a three month old daughter, died last month, several days after he was in collision with a car as he delivered parcels in Clay Lane.

A fundraising campaign set up in his memory and to support his grieving family has reached more than £18,000 after kind-hearted people from across the UK donated thousands of pounds.

Bogdan, a Romanian national, was involved in a collision with an orange Nissan Note at about 2pm on February 17.

Bogdan Chirita, 21, had a three month old baby daughter.

He was rushed to hospital with serious injuries but died a few days later.

Florentina Roxana Duicin, who launched the appeal, said: “The situation is complicated for his partner, as she gave birth only three months ago, and now they are both left alone and now they need our help.

“I hope, through this fundraiser, we can offer them a hand of support to both wife and child.”

Police officers are appealing to anyone who witnessed the collision, or who saw either party prior to the incident, to get in touch, quoting incident number 429 of 17 February.

An Amazon spokesman said: “This is a terrible incident and our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with Bogdan’s family and loved ones at this difficult time.

"We will work with police and the delivery service provider as they investigate.”
