A FAMILY has expressed their sorrow at the death of a man after a motorcycle crash.

Adrian Caddy was riding on theA21 at Seddlescombe, near Hastings, when he collided into a Seat Altea parked in a layby near the junction with Marley Lane.

The incident happened on March 18, and a 46-year-old woman from Etchingham in the Seat was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Emergency services battled to save Mr Caddy’s life, but he sadly died of multiple injuries.

His family has described him as a man who loved nature, who was witty and a “devoted” father.

In a statement the family said: “Words are difficult to express the deep sorrow and the void left by the loss of Adrian in such tragic circumstances.

“He will always be remembered as a loving, treasured and loyal man to his partner, a loving and devoted father to his son, and a great friend to many.

“He was a beautiful man, intelligent and witty, a dreamer of dreams, a fervent defender of the natural world who emphatically led life with his heart.”

Police are investigating the crash.
