The family of a motorcyclist who died in a collision have paid tribute to a "loving, family man".

Andrew Slaughter from Llangennech near Llanelli died following an incident in Cwmdu, Swansea.

The incident, on Thursday, involved Mr Slaughter's yellow Triumph motorcycle and a Skoda Octavia car near to the junction with Cwmdu Industrial Estate.

He leaves his wife, Karen, and three step-children. Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident.

Mr Slaughter, 48, formally of Bracknell, Berkshire, worked as an engineer at Werndale Private Hospital in Carmarthen, and was secretary of the Swansea Deaf Sports and Social Club.

"Nothing was too much for Andrew when it came to caring for his friends and colleagues within the deaf community," said the family in a statement.

They added that his hobbies included golf, watching sport and taking long rides on his motorcycle.

"I will miss him so much, his laugh and smile will stay with me forever, I cannot stop thinking of the future we will never have, and he will always be my special man," his wife added.
