Darren Wood

The family of a man who died on the A5 recently have paid tribute to him; Darren Wood's wife said he was her "soulmate".

Darren 46, of Milton Keynes, died when his motorcycle was involved in a collision with a car at around 7pm, just past the Eastern Way.

Sergeant Declan McDonagh, from the Forensic Collision Investigation Unit, said:

"We're continuing to appeal for witnesses to this tragic incident and would appeal for anyone who witnessed a silver Volkswagen Golf, or a black Suzuki motorbike, travelling along the A5 prior to the incident to get in touch."

Mr Wood's family has paid tribute to him. His wife said:

"Darren was my soulmate, we had been together 17 years and married for six of those. He had a wicked sense of humour, but at the same time he was very loving and caring. He was a proper family man, we did everything together and he would do anything for us and everyone around him. He had a great love for motorbikes and loved going out riding, and spent hours in the shed tinkering with them. It is hard to imagine life without him."

His son said:

"Dad brought me up from a very young age. He taught me how to swim, got me into motorbikes and then eventually taught me how to drive and got me my first car. I will really miss the time that we spent together."
