A 22-year-old man from the Torpoint area remains in hospital with potentially life-changing injuries.

"James Ian Dickson died on Friday 6/9/19 at 1.00pm following a motorbike accident near Antony, Torpoint, Cornwall, the previous day. 

"In his early years he enjoyed camping and hiking and it was only when he got his motorbike that he became besotted with his new hobby. 

"His death is devastating and he will be missed so very much by his parents, family and friends, but we all take comfort in that he died whilst out riding and enjoying his beloved motorbike. 

"Rest in Peace son and enjoy riding in the sky. 

"Love and miss you always".
