In a statement, Hussain’s fiancée said: “He loved cycling and he loved doing his morning routine with his two-year-old son, which included feeding him breakfast, playing with him, taking videos, and spending quality time. Hussien was a very cautious person and kind to everyone in the community. His legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of everyone he interacted with, as well as those he reached but never met.”

Det Sgt Julie Lyman, from West Midlands Police Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “We have spoken with a number of witnesses already, but are still keen to hear from anyone who we have not spoken to, particularly if they have any CCTV or dashcam footage.” E-mail [email protected], quoting log 2461 of 16 May, or get in touch via Live Chat at the West Midlands Police website
