Officers investigating the death of a Bexley man in a collision on the M11 near Harlow on Friday, March 2, are making a renewed appeal for witnesses.

At 8.15pm on Friday, police recieved reports that a grey BMW 318 Sport had lost control, spun and collided with the central barrier of the motorway, southbound at junction seven.

Two people in the vehicle were able to make their way across the carriageway, but 22-year-old Reece Gnazalo, from Bexleyheath, was struck by another vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene just before 9:15pm.

In a tribute to Reece, his family said: “Reece Gnazalo was our beloved son whom was loved by all that met him.

“His beautiful smile and fantastic sense of humour will warm our hearts forever.

“Reece was the kindest person you would ever hope to meet.

“This news of his death is shocking to everyone that knows him.

“He will be greatly missed by all. Rest on Reece.”

Specialist officers are investigating the manner of driving of the BMW prior to the collision and are asking anyone who saw it travelling along the M11 that evening, or who witnessed either collision, to speak to them.

Anyone with information should call investigators at the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 101 or email collisionappeal@essex.pnn.police.uk
