A motorcyclist who died in an accident involving two other vehicles was a “kind-hearted son and loving father,” his family said.

Jack Singleton was travelling on Redbourn Road in Hemel Hempstead at around 06:40 BST on 17 June when the collision occurred.

Hertfordshire Police said Mr Singleton died at the scene. He was 35 years old.

A 23-year-old man arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving, negligent homicide while driving without insurance or a driving ban, and fraud has been released on bail.

A statement from the victim’s family released by police said: “We are deeply heartbroken to confirm the death of Jack Singleton, eldest son of Carol and Chris, on Monday 17 June.”

“He was involved in a traffic accident on his way to work. He left the factory to spend a normal day and never came home.

“Jack was an amazingly kind-hearted son, a devoted, loving father to Toby and Liam, a partner to Natalie, whom he loved and adored, a brother to Lucy, Harry and Vanessa, and an uncle to Maisy and Ella.”

In another tribute, they spoke of his “kindness, love, support and generosity” before adding: “We have a huge void in our lives that can never be filled.”

Hertfordshire Police have appealed for anyone who witnessed the incident to come forward.
