In a tribute, Stephen's family described him as "larger than life itself".

"He was taken too early and so tragically and our lives will never be the same again," his family said.

"He leaves such a big empty hole that can never be filled."

Essex Police has appealed for anyone who was in the area between the Robin Hood roundabout and the Wakes Arms to contact officers.
