Mourners have begun leaving floral tributes close to the scene. A note from Maureen, his wife of 55 years, said: “I will love and miss you forever. My rock, my wonderful husband of 55 years. God bless you.” Another, from granddaughter Kirsty, said: “There are no words to express how I’m feeling. I have lost a very special grandad. My only grandad. I love you so much.”

As well as flowers, cycling-related tributes were also left – Mr Lock was part of the Worthing Excelsior Cycling Club and had been a member for about 50 years. A cycle helmet had been left in tribute, as well as a jersey accompanied by a note simply saying ‘God bless, Don’ – while a bouquet carried a note signed from Alan & Becky that read ‘Ride safe up there Don’.

Yesterday afternoon, police arrested a 34-year-old Worthing man on suspicion of murder.
