Tributes have been paid to a man who died after his motorcycle was in collision with a car in Oxfordshire.

Giles Rose, of Kingsley Road in Northampton, died in hospital following the crash on 21 July.

His Kawasaki ZX was in a collision with a BMW 3 Series on the A361 near Williamscot, north of Banbury. The car driver was not injured.

Mr Rose's family said the 43-year-old loved motorbikes and was an "intelligent" and "much-admired" man.

Mr Rose set up Castle Conservatories with a friend five years ago.

In a statement his family added: "Giles's passion in life was his motorbikes and he got his first bike aged 17.

"He had only recently attended the Isle of Man TT races which he adored.

"It was this passion that has sadly taken him from this world in a tragic accident.

"Giles was an intelligent and much-admired man.

"You could always rely on Giles to be there for you no matter what, he wouldn't care if you called him in the middle of the night, nothing was too much trouble."
