A 32-year old motorcyclist from Porton who died in a crash at Middle Wallop was "always full of fun and life".

Peter Lowe was pronounced dead at the scene of a crash on the A343 at Middle Wallop on 7.10pm on Sunday, October 28.

Police were called to the junction with Salisbury Lane after receiving reports of a crash between Mr Lowe's red Yamaha motorbike and a black Land Rover Discovery.

The Land Rover driver, a man in his 50s from Walhampton, was uninjured.

Mr Lowe’s family described Peter as "a kind and caring man who loved his family and pets and riding his bike".

They added: “He was always full of fun and life, compassionate and caring. He also enjoyed quiet time and liked to sit by the river and chill out watching the birds and animals.

“I will miss my son so much, and his sisters and nephews, who were also a major part of his life, will miss him more than words can say.

“He was never happier than when he was with the boys and playing in the swimming pool or going on walks with them. Peter had a great sense of humour and always brought fun and laughter to our family occasions and life in general.

“I very much hope people will help us with information to try and understand his last moments and how this tragedy happened.”

Officers would still like to hear from anyone who was driving on the A343, from Andover and towards Salisbury, at around this time and remembers seeing a motorbike in front or behind their vehicle, or who may have captured the incident on dashcam.

Anyone with information should call police on 101.
