The family of a 35-year-old motorcyclist who died in a crash have paid tribute saying he was "much loved by all who knew him".

Gareth John Edwards was involved in a collision with three other vehicles between Llanover and Llanellen in Monmouthshire on Wednesday afternoon.

Mr Edwards, from Blaenavon in Torfaen, was taken to hospital where he later died.

His family said he would be "dearly missed".

Mr Edwards, who had a baby daughter, was riding a Honda motorbike that was involved in a crash with a car and two vans at about 1430 GMT.

Police are investigating the cause of the collision and appealing for witnesses to come forward.

Mr Edwards' family said: "Gareth was very much loved by all who knew him. He was such a happy chap, always smiling and joking.

"He doted on his eight-and-a-half-month-old daughter Rhiannon and loved nothing more than to hold her proudly in his arms.

"Gareth enjoyed the company of family and friends, especially his chums in the motorcycle world. He loved his bike. It had always been his main interest and hobby."

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Gwent Police collision investigation unit on 01633 642404.
