A 26-year-old man from Maidenhead who died after being hit by a car on the A404 on Sunday morning has been named locally as Carl Walker.

Tributes have been paid on social media to the former Desborough College pupil, who has been described as 'one of the nicest guys you could ever wish to know' and the 'best guy ever'.

Carl, who worked at Norden Farm, was killed after he was hit by a black Audi A3 near the turning for the A4130 near Burchetts Green.

The driver stopped after the incident.

A statement on behalf of Norden Farm said: "Carl was a very loved and valued member of the Norden Farm team.

"We are all in a deep state of shock and sadness at this tragic loss.

"Carl worked at Norden Farm for over seven years and was team leader of the café bar.

"His warmth, sense of fun and professionalism radiated out to other staff and customers and he will be very missed.

"Our thoughts go out to his family at this very sad time."

Investigating officer from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, PC Julie Stroud, said: "I would like to speak to anyone who witnessed this collision on the A404 or who saw the pedestrian or the vehicle travelling prior to the collision. Anyone with any information, regardless of how insignificant they feel it may be, should contact police."
