A motorcyclist has died six days after he collided with cow on a Cumbria road.

Keith Graham was riding on a C-class road, between Burgh-by-Sands and Boustead Hill on 22 May, when he struck the animal and came off his vehicle.

The 45-year-old of East End, Kirkbampton, Carlisle suffered serious injuries and died at the Cumberland Infirmary on Monday.

The cow was humanely destroyed. Police have appealed for information about the crash, which happened at 19:10 BST.

Mr Graham's family said in a statement: "Keith was loved, respected and admired by all who knew him.

"Never will there be a man who is more sorely missed, not just by the family but by an entire community of people.

"It is with great sadness that we have to say goodbye to a man who brought so much joy and laughter to everyone who had the privilege of knowing him."
