TRIBUTES have been paid to a father-of-three from Flookburgh who died following a collision yesterday (Thursday).
Emergency services were called to the A684 at Garsdale, Sedbergh, at 1.40pm after a collision occurred between a yellow BMW motorcycle and a blue Hyundai Amica.
Paramedics attended, but despite efforts at the scene, the motorcyclist, 48-year-old Garry Sharp, died.
In a statement his family said: "It is with great sadness that Garry has been so suddenly taken away from us. Garry who was a fantastic husband and brilliant dad will be missed by all that knew him.
"Garry enjoyed many hobbies including wood turning, DIY and walking with his dogs. He was an avid motorcycle enthusiast; however nothing came second in his life than the love and care that he had for his family.
"Garry lived for the special times he spent with his family and dogs and will be missed by his wife Angela and three sons Luke, Josh and Lewi who have been left devastated by this tragic incident."
Cumbria Police have launched an investigation into the circumstances of the collision.
The driver of the car, a 79-year-old man from Lincolnshire, received slight injuries and was treated at a local hospital. He is helping police with the investigation.
A 73-year-old female passenger was uninjured.
Anyone who witnessed the crash is asked to call PC Jackson at Kendal Roads Policing Unit on 101.
