Tributes have been paid to a “gentle” and “selfless” man who died in a suspected hit-and-run crash.

Thomas Radbourne, 26, was killed on Monday when his motorbike collided with a small black car in Bishops Tachbrook, Warwickshire.

He died at the scene of the crash, which happened on Banbury Road at around 21:50 BST.

Police are now appealing to find the occupants of the car, which failed to stop.

In a statement, the family of Mr Radbourne, from Tamworth, said: “Our dearest Thomas – the most gentle, thoughtful, kindest, generous, selfless son, brother and friend.

“We have absolutely no idea how we will be able to live without you, we love and miss you terribly.”
