Police were called just after 2.25pm on Monday 22 April, to reports of a single vehicle incident involving a motorcycle on the A1120.

The vehicle - a silver Kymco Miler 125 – left the road and went into a ditch.
 
 Paramedics were also in attendance, but the rider involved, Paul Knight, 51 from Liverpool, sadly died at the scene. Mr Knight’s family have asked us to issue the following tribute on their behalf:

"Paul Knight originally from Merseyside was a generous, loving Dad to his two grown up children Marc and Kate, Granddad to Grace and Max and brother to Julie and Shaun. He loved being with his family so much, he was most happy with all his family around him as well as his extended family of his nephews David, Jamie and Daniel and their partners and children. 

"He worked as an electrician and was extremely hardworking travelling around the country as his work took him about.  Paul was mad about his football and had been a lifelong supporter of Everton. He’d lived in the Isle of Man for over 16 years and had many friends there.  He regularly travelled abroad and loved his holidays. He was a popular man and he’ll be very sadly missed by all his family, friends and work colleagues who are all devastated by this awful road accident.”
