A man who died after being hit by a car was "kind and generous" and a "loved son", his family has said.

Alan Strong, 52, was struck as he was walking along Littleton Road, Salford, at about 18:00 BST on 30 April and died later in hospital.

The car was later found on Dalton Drive in Pendlebury.

A 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and failing to stop at the scene. He was released on bail.

A statement from Mr Strong's family said: "Alan was a loved son to Norma and the late Norman. He was kind and generous, especially to those in need.

"He had a fondness for the elderly and children alike. He will be sadly missed by family and friends."
