Iain Prestwich died following a collision on the A66 Embleton when his black Yamaha motorcycle collided with a Blue Hyundai i10.

His Iain parents said: “Iain was a very kind person, and was always helping us and people around the village. From a young man he had a great love of motorcycles, and he would travel all over on his bike, which brought him great joy. He will be greatly missed by us, and everyone who knew him.

“Thanks to Iain’s brother Andrew for his love and support in this difficult time. We would also like to thank Vanessa and Andy from Cumbria Police for their ongoing kindness and support.”

Mr Prestwich’s partner Jackie said: “Iain has been my partner for the last ten years, my family and myself will miss him every day.

“His love of bikes was his passion, he loved the sense of freedom he felt.

“Please everyone reading this, car drivers be more aware of bikes and bikers please be safe, then maybe fewer families will not have to live their lives without a loved one.”

William Bell, the driver of the Hyunda car was also pronounced dead at the scene.

Police are appealing to anyone who may of seen the incident, and are also keen to speak to the driver of a Mitsubishi 4x4 which was towing a horsebox traveling towards Keswick who may have witnessed the collision or motorcycle.

If anyone has any information which may assist the investigation please call Cumbria Police on 101 and ask for PC 1788 Crawford from the Roads Policing Unit on 101.
