A PCSO from South Wales Police has been described as a “great ambassador” for the force.

41-year-old Stephen Lewis from Neath was killed whilst he was riding his bike in Devon on Monday.

He was on holiday with his family.

Devon and Cornwall Police said he was involved in a collision with a Skoda Citigo on the A3123 near Ilfracombe, but the female driver of the car was unhurt.

Another man cycling with Mr Lewis at the time was treated for minor injuries.

Chief Superintendent Joe Ruddy from South Wales Police paid tribute:

"Steve possessed all the qualities to be a fantastic police community support officer - hard working, enthusiastic, someone who loved helping people.

"He was a great ambassador for South Wales Police at the number of community events which he attended with his colleagues in the community safety department.

"He was recently recognised for his outstanding work by the Swansea Neighbourhood Watch Association and just prior to him going on holiday he helped a group of school children during their work experience with South Wales Police to ensure their time with us was fun and rewarding.

"Steve was a hugely respected member of the team and everyone is shocked and saddened to hear of his death in such tragic circumstances. Our thoughts are with his family, friends and colleagues at this very sad time.''

Any witnesses of the crash are asked to call Devon and Cornwall Police.
