A man who died in a motorcycle crash in Berkshire has been named.

Steven Huntley, 47, founder of Swift Couriers in Newbury, died in the collision in Great Shefford on Friday.

His partner, Louise Purton, described the father-of-five as an "impressive and bold businessman" whose "generosity knew no bounds".

She said: "Steve lived a full and exciting life and packed more into his 47 years than many of us pack into a life time."

She added: "His generosity knew no bounds. Steve sponsored numerous local charities such as the Rapid Response Car, mobility scooters for the local hospital, the Christmas Children's Appeal and many other local events.

"His family, especially his five children, were his world and there was nothing he wouldn't do for them. He was a source of knowledge, which he used to help and support his children in so many ways."
