A family have paid tribute to a ‘much loved son, brother, grandson and cousin’ following a fatal collision on the A27 earlier this month.

Hampshire Police were called at 12.35am on Friday 15 September to reports that a motorcycle had been involved in a collision on the A27 westbound at Farlington.

Emergency services attended but sadly the motorcyclist, 29-year-old Dion Hancock from Gosport, was pronounced dead at the scene.

His family are being supported by specialist officers and have now made the following tribute to him:

“Dion was a much loved son, brother grandson and cousin, an integral part of our family, we will miss his warmth, his humour.

“While we feel very lucky to have many cherished memories of the short time he was with us, we also grieve the massive loss of him and of the many more years he should have had ahead of him.

“Dion will forever be in our thoughts and hearts, we will always love him and never forget him.”

Officers investigating the circumstances of this incident would like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and may have seen anything which may assist our enquiries.

Did you see the motorcycle, a blue Yamaha MT-125, in the moments leading up to the incident, or did you witness the collision itself?

We are particularly keen to hear from anyone who was driving through the area at the time and captured anything via dash cam.

Anyone with information who has not yet spoken to police is asked to call 101 quoting reference 44230376169/Op Karibiner.
