DRONFIELD TRAGEDY: 'Martin was the love of my life'
The partner of a man who died after being hit by a train has paid tribute to 'the love of her life'.
Martin Wilde, 53, passed away at Dronfield railway station last night.
A father to four children and three step-children, Mr Wilde, of Smithy Place, Grassmoor, had been in a relationship with Denise Lewis for four months.
She said: "Martin was loved by so many people.
"He truly was one-in-a-million and will never be forgotten.
"My four months with Martin were the happiest days of my life.
"I had some wonderful times with him.
"I'll always miss Martin - he was the love of my life."
Ms Lewis said Mr Wilde - who was also known as Mosher - suffered from mental health problems.
He appeared in the Derbyshire Times earlier this year, calling for an apology after his mother fell and died at Chesterfield Royal Hospital.
A British Transport Police spokesman said: "We attended Dronfield railway station just before 7pm on Tuesday night following reports that a man had been struck by a train.
"Sadly, a man died at the scene.
"There are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death and a file is being prepared for the coroner."
