Motorcyclist dies in 'falling tree' crash in Romsey
A motorcyclist has died in a crash in which it is believed he was hit by a falling tree.
Jake Podesta, 28, from King's Somborne, was riding along Greatbridge Road in Romsey on Thursday.
Hampshire Constabulary believes he was hit by the falling tree at around 20:30 BST and has appealed for witnesses.
Mr Podesta's family said he was a beloved son and brother who would be sorely missed.
"Jake put a smile on many a face with his quick-witted humour and jovial attitude, which spilled over into his ability to write rap music about many life situations," they said.
