THE family of a West Dean motorcyclist, who died in a collision in Sherfield English, have paid tribute to the 22-year-old.

Roy Baker was killed on Sunday when his black Honda motorbike was involved in a collision with a beige-coloured Mini.

Both vehicles were travelling on the A27 Salisbury Road in the direction of Whiteparish when the collision took place at around 3.15pm.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Paying tribute, his family said: “Our Roy Boy - the most kind-hearted, loved, amazing son, brother and best uncle in the world to his nephew and niece.

“We couldn't be prouder to have a son and a brother like our Roy Boy. He loved life, he loved his family, and he loved horses and his side-kick dog Lewis.

“Our biggest ray of sunshine in our lives – gone, but it's not goodbye, Our Boy, it's see you later.

“Roy's family would like to thank everybody that stopped and helped Roy, it means a lot.”

Officers are still searching for the vehicle that slowed down at the scene to drive around the collision site before continuing on towards Romsey.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101, quoting 44190120636.

As reported, friends of the 22-year-old have also left tributes at the scene of crash, including flowers and bottles of beer.

One tribute said: "Dear Roy, you will forever be missed by everyone, fly high. Miss you forever."

Another said: "You were given to us for only a short time but God had plans for such a young gentle friendly man as you."
