Family Tribute After Crash

The family of a young man who died when his quad bike hit a tree in Ashford have released a tribute to him.

Michael Stickells, who was 22, was travelling along Finn Farm Road in Kingsnorth, when his red Honda quad bike crashed on the morning of Saturday 8 December. He suffered  head injuries and died in hospital two days later.

In a joint tribute, Mr Stickells’ family said: "Our son was a wonderful young man.

"He would help anyone who needed it. He was honest and reliable. A son, brother, uncle, grandson, boyfriend and so much more – we’re so proud of him.

"He took pride in himself and lived life to the full. He has achieved so much for one so young. He will be sadly missed by everyone who knew him.

"Our lives will never be the same, losing him is so painful, the love we shared can never be replaced."

Police are continuing to appeal for witness.
