The family of a man who died in a motorway crash have described him as "wonderful and funny".

Clark Greenwood was a passenger in a Ford Focus which hit a broken-down Mercedes in the middle lane of the M6 near Holmes Chapel on Saturday.

The 62-year-old from Ashton-under-Lyne died in hospital on Sunday. Three men, aged 29, 48 and 57, remain in hospital.

The people travelling in the Mercedes were waiting by the side of the carriageway when the crash happened.

Mr Greenwood's family said they were "heartbroken to have lost our dad, grandad, brother, uncle, and friend".

"Clark was a wonderful and funny family man and to lose him in these circumstances is so sad.

"His comedic outlook on life and his overwhelming kindness is an inspiration to us all and will be deeply missed by everyone who held him so dear."

The crash saw the northbound carriageway closed for several hours between Junctions 17 and 18.

Cheshire Constabulary have asked anyone with information about the crash to get in touch.
