The family of a Kent Police officer who died when his car collided with a bus have said he was "the best husband and a fantastic daddy".

Det Con Adrian Grew, 32, suffered fatal injuries in the crash at the Scotney Castle roundabout on the A21 Lamberhurst bypass on Monday.

No passengers were on the double-decker bus and the driver was not injured.

His family paid tribute, saying: "Our whole world caved in and we lost the most amazing man."

'Bright future'

He had recently joined the Serious Crime Directorate after working in Tonbridge for several years, a Kent Police Federation spokesman said.

No passengers were on the double-decker bus and the driver was not injured.

In a statement, his family said: "Not only was he the best husband, a fantastic daddy, the best son, brother and friend, but he was also a dedicated and professional police officer who loved his job.

"It is difficult for us to contemplate life without him."

Mr Grew, who had a wife and baby son, was off duty at the time of the crash, a Kent Police spokeswoman said.

Det Insp Jon Armory, from Kent Police, said: "Adrian had a very bright future ahead of him and was a fantastic colleague to work with.

"He will be sorely missed by all of us who knew and worked with him."
