Family pays tribute to man hit by car outside club
A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder following the collision on Sunday.
The family of a man who died after a car was driven into a group of people has described him as “kind and loving”.
Nathan Marshall, 30, from Reddish, died in hospital after he was hit by the black Audi A4 outside the Salisbury Club in Brinnington, Stockport, Greater Manchester, at about 10.45pm on Sunday.
In a statement, his family said: “Nathan was our much loved son, he was kind and loving and a wonderful friend to the many people who knew and cared about him.
“Nathan was our first born. He lit up the room when he was alive. Living without him will be the hardest thing we will do as a family and we are devastated by our loss.”
A 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder after he presented himself at Central Park police station shortly before 10pm on Monday.
He remains in custody.
Two other men, aged 31 and 33, suffered minor injuries in the collision.
Police later found the Audi on the M60 motorway and believe the driver climbed a nearby fence before running away.
On Tuesday, floral tributes left at the scene said Mr Marshall had a new baby sister.
At the police cordon outside the club on Truro Avenue, dozens of bunches of flowers and cards had been left.
One note attached to flowers read: “From the landlady and family and customers of The Salisbury Club, so very sorry we tried our hardest.
“We’d only met you for the first time but we’ll never forget your pleasant smile. Rest in Peace.”
Another read: “RIP Nathan, We had some great times back in cruise days. Taken too soon. Sleep tight mate, Nige XXX.”
A third said: “Rest in peace Nathan, You’ll be missed by so many. I promise I’ll look after your baby sister for you, always in my heart, Liv XXXX.”
