Michael Galt was a "fun-loving" man, who was about to become a grandfather for the sixth time.

The 59-year-old from Palm Crescent, Birchington, was struck by a Mini Cooper on the A28 Canterbury Road while out for his daily run.

He leaves behind wife Hannah, sons Emrys and Paul and five grandchildren. Paul's wife Sarah is pregnant with his sixth.

Emrys, 36, said: "He was a loving husband, father and grandfather who was loved greatly and is terribly missed.

"He was the fun one and running was his passion. That is how people will know him."

He was a talented sportsman and had completed a number of double marathons.

Mr Galt's body was identified by his family yesterday, and a postmortem is due to be held next week.

Anyone who witnessed the crash or who thinks they have information for the inquiry should contact Kent Police's serious collision investigation team on 01622 798538.
