THE family of a motorcyclist killed in a Cumbria crash have paid tribute to a "a loving father, son, brother, uncle and partner."

Ian Alan Broughton, aged 52, suffered fatal injuries in the crash on the A684 at Langston Fell, near Sedbergh, at about 2.15pm yesterday.

In a statement, Mr Broughton's family said: “Ian was a loving father, son, brother, uncle and partner who was taken from us on March 30 after a tragic motorbike accident on the A684 in Sedbergh.

“During his life Ian enjoyed going to the Isle of Man TT races following in the footsteps of his idol Joey Dunlop. He loved nothing more than riding his prized MV Agusta motorbike with his treasured friends.

"Ian always lived life to the full and the family take great comfort knowing that he was taken from them doing what he enjoyed the most.

“His lifelong interest in music and attending concerts was shared with his cherished daughters Kellie and Rebecca.

“Sadly missed by all who knew him.”

The car — a gold coloured Volkswagen Tiguan — was heading east when it was involved in a crash with Mr Broughton’s black and red MV Augusta motorbike.

The 55-year-old man driving the car, from Sedbergh, escaped with “light” injuries and was treated at the scene by paramedics.

Police are appealing for any witnesses to the crash or the circumstances leading up to it.

The road was closed for several hours as the emergency services dealt with the accident Mr Broughton was one of four motorists - three of them motorcyclists involved in separate incidents - who died on Cumbria's roads yesterday.

Anybody with information can contact Cumbria Police on 101 and ask for PC 1567 Kevin Jackson at Kendal Operational Support Unit, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
