Since his death, the driver of the van - a man aged in his 50s - was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and has been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

Detective Sergeant David Burstow from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit said: “Our thoughts remain with Jorell’s family and friends at what continues to be an incredibly difficult time.

“We would politely request that their privacy is respected.

“Enquiries are continuing to establish how the collision occurred.

“We are still appealing for anyone who was travelling along the bypass and saw the car, which we believe may have been broken down in lane one prior to the collision, or witnessed the collision itself to please get in touch.
