Tributes are pouring in following the death of Grassmoor's Martin Wilde.

The much-loved and popular dad sadly died after being hit by a train at Dronfield railway station on Tuesday night.

Mr Wilde - who was also known as Mosher - suffered from mental health problems.

His partner Denise Lewis last night described the 53-year-old as 'one-in-a-million' and said she had lost 'the love of her life'.

Scores of tributes have been paid to Mr Wilde on the Derbyshire Times' Facebook page. Here are some of them...

Adrian Jones: "RIP Martin, top bloke. He didn't have a bad bone in his body."

Sarah Wilky: "He was a lovely man and very polite. I saw him in Grassmoor a lot. So sad."

Dave Longden: "A terrible shame. I knew him when he worked at Dema. He was a smashing lad. RIP mate."

Malc Hancock: "Can't believe I'm reading this. Such a pleasant person. RIP pal."

Rob Wakeling: "Praying for the family."
