The family of a 22-year-old who died after being struck by a driver from Wisbech on the M11 have paid tribute to their “truly loved son, brother and grandson”.
Harry Macarthur was hit by a white Suzuki Swift just after 8.30pm on April 8, between junctions 11 and 12 near Cambridge.
Emergency services attended but Mr Macarthur, of St Lukes Street, Cambridge, died at the scene.
The driver of the car, a 21-year-old man from Wisbech, failed a roadside drugs test and was arrested on suspicion of causing death through careless driving.
He has since been released under investigation.

“Harry will remain in our thoughts forever.”
