TRIBUTES have been paid to the "trusting and truthful" motorcyclist who died after a crash last weekend.

Adrian Bose, from Warminster, died on Monday at Southampton General Hospital, following a crash near Shrewton at about 4.15pm on Sunday.

The 48-year-old was riding a red and white Honda motorbike, which collided with a Volvo coach carrying a number of passengers at the Copehill Down Crossing.

His family said: ""Adrian was a devout Christian and his faith formed the foundation of his life and he tried his utmost to live by this.

"He was trusting and truthful, with a sharp sense of humour. Adrian had several passions; a keen interest in medical care, he had wanted to be part of the ambulance service, or train as a paramedic.

"He was also passionate about animals and cared strongly about their welfare. His family and friends will miss him deeply."

There were no other injuries and an investigation is ongoing.
