Nina Whitehead used to work with him and relayed the story of how he rescued her in a car accident, first in a call to Ian Collins last night and then by joining James O'Brien in the LBC studio.

"He never seemed to be miserable, he was always such a good laugh," Nina told James. "He was already a hero. In my eyes he always will be."

She said: "I did know him very well, he saved my life in fact. So I just wanted to let everyone know what a wonderful man he was.

"He actually did save my life in a car accident on duty when I was a police officer in 2007. I was the passenger and he was one of the police officers who actually helped save my life. So I owe him everything.

"He was a wonderful Dad and a wonderful husband to his wife. He was fun, he was a laugh, he cared. I know everyone, when someone passes, why do they always say he was such a lovely person, but he actually really was.

"And he cared about what he was doing, he actually cared about his job."
