THE family of a young man killed in a motorcycle accident have paid tribute to him.

Vincent Fox died after colliding with a silver Vauxhall Corsa in London Road, Greenhithe, last Thursday.

The Kent Air Ambulance was called but the 26-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene.

His father, Derek Fox, said: "Vince was a fun-loving person with a passion for motorbikes which he has had since he was a small child.

"He was much-loved by all who knew him and he will leave a big hole in the lives of his friends and family who all miss him dearly."

The road was closed for more than three hours while forensic officers and police from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit gathered evidence.

The Vauxhall Corsa driver was treated for shock after the crash, which happened at around 3pm.

Anyone who witnessed the collision should call 01622 798538.
