Family pay tribute to ‘The most kind and generous gentleman’

The family of a man from Newport, who died following a collision on Cardiff Road, Newport, has paid tribute to him, describing him as ‘kind, generous and special’.

Officers received a report of a road traffic collision – at around 4.50pm on Thursday 8 February.

The collision involved a silver Hyundai i10 car – and a pedestrian.

The pedestrian, an 84-year-old Newport man, was taken to hospital where he later died.

He can now be named as Charles Sully; his next of kin have been informed and are receiving support from specialist officers.

Charles’ family has paid tribute to him, saying:
