Ashley Kerr suffered fatal injuries in the crash with a car on St Mark's Road, Tipton, at around 4.10pm on May 22 this year.

His heartbroken family described him as 'such a funny character' who had lots of friends and was always smiling.

"You will forever be in our hearts and you'll always be missed."

The driver of the car remained at the scene and is helping police with their enquiries.

Inspector Steve Radford from West Midlands Police's Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: “Our specialist officers are continuing to support Ashley's family at this awful time.

“We have spoken with a number of witnesses, but anyone further who does have information, or dash cam footage, should get in touch with us please."
