8:27am 15th December 2014

Police investigating a collision in which a 24-year-old motorcyclist died have reissued their appeal for witnesses backed by his partner and family.

Brett Sinclair Hames of Foulridge near Colne, died in Leeds General Infirmary on Friday 5 December 2014 after the motorcycle he was riding crashed on Pole Road between Cowling and Laycock in the Keighley area. It is believed that Brett was in collision with a black car, however, officers need to clarify the exact circumstances

Police have renewed their appeal for information and particularly want to speak to the drivers of a lorry and a Luton van who stopped at the scene of the collision.

They have also widened their appeal to anyone who was travelling along Pole Road on the afternoon of Friday 5 December 2014, to contact them.

Traffic Constable Dave Seavers said: "Unfortunately no-one has come forward following our appeal for witnesses and we urgently need to speak to anyone who was travelling along Pole Road in either direction. Even you did not witness the actual collision, we still need to speak to you as you could have important information that could help our investigation.

"We know that the driver of a lorry and a Luton van stopped at the scene, I need to speak to the these drivers, even if they did not witness the actual crash, they could still provide vital information."

Brett's partner, Rebecca Gregory and Brett's family have backed the appeal for information. Rebecca said: "I urge anyone who was travelling along Pole Road or in the immediate area on that Friday afternoon to please contact the police. We are absolutely devastated by Brett's death and at the very least,  need to find out what caused the crash."

Anyone with information is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2 and ask for the Major Collision Investigation Team. Or email mcit@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk

From Brett's partner, Rebecca Gregory and Brett's family

Brett truly was such an amazing person, the most perfect fiance, son, brother and friend. He had a huge heart so full of love and touched everyone's life with such light and happiness.

He was a great adventurer and grabbed life with both hands.

Brett's life contained nothing but love and happiness. Brett's entire family and his friends are so utterly heartbroken at this tragic loss. He is and will be forever desperately missed.
