Tributes are being paid to David Hall (Picture: Herts Police)

Tributes are being paid to a Hertfordshire man who was found with serious head injuries in Waltham Cross.

63-year-old David Hall, from the town, never regained consciousness and died in hospital after he was discovered in Swanfield Road on December 21st.

His family say David was an 'incredibly warm, funny and generous man'.

Police believe he'd been hit by a vehicle.

He leaves his mother Patricia, his brothers Andrew, Geoff and John and his son Christopher.

Christopher said: "Dad ran arguably the oldest family-owned businesses in Tottenham - Halls Greengrocers - with his brother Andrew. A familiar face to most of Tottenham, he was considered a pillar of the community. He oversaw the regeneration of Holcombe Road market which gave a platform to several local entrepreneurs, many of whom naturally became close friends. It will be his legacy.

"A passionate supporter of Tottenham Hotspur - a season ticket holder for over 40 years - his loss will leave a massive hole in his local communities of Waltham Cross and Tottenham.

"We are all devastated by his passing, and request privacy to grieve at this difficult time."

:: Officers from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit are continuing to investigate David's death, which is being treated as the result of a fail-to-stop collision.

:: If you have any information that could assist the enquiry, please call 101 quoting reference ISR 776 of December 21. You can also report information online at or speak to one of our call operators in the Force Communications Room via online web chat.
