The family of biker Peter Lowe who died in a crash with a Land Rover north of Winchester say he was full of fun and life.

32-year-old Peter Lowe from Porton in Wiltshire died at the scene on the A343 at Middle Wallop last month.

Police were called to the junction with Salisbury Lane after receiving reports of a collision between a red Yamaha motorbike and black Land Rover Discovery at 7.10pm on Sunday 28 October.

Peter was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Land Rover driver, a man in his 50s from Walhampton, was uninjured.

Peter's family have released the following tribute:

"Peter was a kind and caring man who loved his family and pets and riding his bike. 

"He was always full of fun and life, compassionate and caring. He also enjoyed quiet time and liked to sit by the river and chill out watching the birds and animals.

"I will miss my son so much, and his sisters and nephews, who were also a major part of his life, will miss him more than words can say.

"He was never happier than when he was with the boys and playing in the swimming pool or going on walks with them.

"Peter had a great sense of humour and always brought fun and laughter to our family occasions and life in general.

"I very much hope people will help us with information to try and understand his last moments and how this tragedy happened."

Officers want to hear from anyone who was driving on the A343, from Andover and towards Salisbury, at around that time and remembers seeing a motorbike in front or behind their vehicle.
