Mathew Smyth, 25, from Parsonage Close in Duxford, was riding a red Yamaha motorbike when it was involved in a collision in the early hours of Wednesday morning (August 29).

Mathew’s family said: “We, the family and friends are absolutely heart broken and distraught beyond belief at the loss of Mathew. We have lost the most amazing, cheeky, fun-loving young man anyone could ever wish to meet.

“The impact this has and will forever have on our lives is indescribable; Mathew will now never get to meet his unborn child.”
