The family of a man who died between Driffield and Langfoft on Monday 14 November have paid tribute to him.

Police were called at 5:30pm following reports of a collision between a car and a motorbike on the B1249 Scarborough Road. The motorcyclist was taken to hospital but sadly died from his injuries.

We are now able to name the man who sadly died in the collision as 64-year-old David Sixsmith.

David’s family have paid tribute to him, saying: “David was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather. He loved his family, his job and vintage ploughing matches, and enjoyed canal boat holidays and World War Two planes.

“He enjoyed being with his friends and just life in general. He was so kind and generous and would help anyone.”

We would ask anyone who has information about the collision to get in touch with us on our non-emergency number 101, quoting log 418 of 14 November.
