Tributes have been paid to a 28-year-old motorcyclist who died following a crash in Flintshire.

Nino Sorrentino, from Mold, died when his Suzuki bike was in collision with a black Renault Clio on Kinnerton Lane, Kinnerton, on Saturday afternoon.

His family said he "lived every day to the limit" and was "the most beautiful person we have ever been blessed to meet."

He was taken to Wrexham Maelor Hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.

"Not only is his beauty on the outside but it also radiates from within. Our love for him will live on in our hearts forever," his family said in a statement.

"His kindness is limitless and his laughter is endless.

"Nino will undoubtedly leave an immeasurable void in this world but along with that void there are many wonderful memories for many people.

"Nino touched many people with his infectious personality and his lust for life.

"Nino is such a wonderful son and brother and our hearts are truly broken. We will miss him terribly.

"His life, although too short, is lived to the full, filled with happiness and laughter.

"We ask that each and every person who had the pleasure to know and love Nino, please remember him this way always."

Jenny Udale, a close friend, added: "Nino has been a major part in my life, and that I will always cherish.

"Nino had a heart of pure gold which is why his many friends and I will always love and miss him."

North Wales Police have appealed for witnesses to contact the roads policing unit on 101 or 0845 6071001 (Welsh language line) or 0845 6071002 (English language line).
