Tribute to man killed in collision on M6
Lee McKenna - victim

The man who died in the road traffic collision on the M6 southbound has been named as Lee Mark McKenna.

The collision happened between junctions 26 and 27 of the M6 on Monday 30 June 2008.

Lee, aged 29, is originally from Liverpool, but was living in Blackpool at the time of the collision.

Lee's mum, Kathy and his sister Nicola have paid tribute to him, saying: "Lee was always the life and soul of the party, with a happy-go-lucky approach to life.

"He always put others before himself and would often go out of his way to help them. If there was a problem, he would always be there to help without being asked.

"Lee was a gentle, loving character and was popular with all those that got to know him.

"He will be dearly missed by all his family and friends, in particular his mum and sister."

Lee had a close relationship with his mum, who has been deeply affected by this tragedy.

His niece Melissa described Lee as: "The best uncle in the world with a great sense of humour."

Police were called shortly after 1.50pm following reports a grey Renault Clio had left the carriageway and collided with an embankment.

Officers are investigating how the collision happened and are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the collision to call 0161 856 1550.

A 22-year-old man from Liverpool has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and driving with excess alcohol.

He remains in custody for questioning.
