COL­LEAGUES of a for­mer postal worker who died in a road ac­ci­dent have paid trib­ute to him.

Peter Ginn, 50, who worked at the Royal Mail in Ger­rards Cross, died af­ter his sil­ver Suzuki mo­tor­cy­cle col­lided with a black Vaux­hall As­tra and a red Ford Fi­esta on the A4020 Ox­ford Road, in New Den­ham.

The Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Work­ers’ Union, which rep­re­sents work­ers in the postal and tele­coms sec­tor, has paid trib­ute to Mr Ginn.

Branch sec­re­tary Andy Moorey said: “It was very tragic news when we heard that Peter had had a fa­tal ac­ci­dent on his mo­tor­bike.

“Peter was the lo­cal Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Work­ers’ Union rep­re­sen­ta­tive for the Ger­rards Cross de­liv­ery of­fice for a num­ber of years and, on be­half of the South East num­ber five branch, I would like to pass on our sin­cere con­do­lences to Peter’s fam­ily.”

Mr Ginn, who lived in West Dray­ton, leaves a step­mother and broth­ers and sis­ters, who also re­leased a trib­ute to their rel­a­tive.

In a brief state­ment, Mr Ginn’s fam­ily said: “Pete worked for the Royal Mail at Ger­rards Cross for 10 years, where he was a very well-re­spected mem­ber of the of­fice, be­fore re­cently mov­ing to Greens Prin­ters, of High Wy­combe.

“He will be sorely missed by his fam­ily and his many friends and col­leagues.”

The ac­ci­dent hap­pened out­side the KFC restau­rant at around 12.40pm on Tues­day, Jan­uary 20.

Paramedics fought to save Mr Ginn, but he was pro­nounced dead at the scene.

Po­lice later ar­rested the driver of the Vaux­hall As­tra, a 27-year-old man from West Dray­ton, on sus­pi­cion of caus­ing death by danger­ous driv­ing. He has been bailed un­til March 7.
