Gemma Bowler, a niece of the couple, said: “My auntie Sandra and uncle Michael were loving and caring people and would do anything for anybody. My family and I are heartbroken.”

Nephew Steve Dangerfield said: “Sandra and Michael were a lovely couple, always liked and loved by family and friends.

“You were both taken from us too soon and will never be forgotten.

“Detectives are not looking for anyone else in relation to the incident, but are appealing for any witnesses or anyone who may have dash cam footage to contact them on 101 quoting incident 450 of October 14.

“Our thoughts are with the families during this time.”
