Jack Edwards, an 83 year old man from Walsall, has been named as the victim of a road traffic collision on Lichfield’s Beacon Street.

The fatal incident happened on Friday just outside the memorial gardens in the centre of Lichfield. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Mr Edwards was waiting for the bus with his wife Elsie after one of their regular trips to Lichfield from their home on Bentley Lane in the Birchills area of Walsall.

The couple were married for 61 years. Mrs Edwards said, “Jack was the love of my life and my greatest friend for over 60 years. He loved to be out in the fresh air, and walking was one of his loves. He will be sadly missed by me and all his family.”
