The family of a motorcyclist killed in a crash with a tractor in Hampshire has said he had "the most gorgeous, infectious, cheeky smile".

Jimi McIndoe, 37, a father of five from Bitterne, died in Bubb Lane, Hedge End, on Sunday afternoon.

The tractor driver, a 32-year-old man from Upham, has been arrested along with a 57-year-old man from Eastleigh.

They were held on suspicion of causing death by careless or inconsiderate driving and were bailed until January.

'Devoted father'

In a tribute, the family of Mr McIndoe, of Ludlow Road, said that he would be "sadly missed".

His wife, Jackie, said: "Jimi was one of a kind. He had the most gorgeous, infectious, cheeky smile that lit up the room.

"He was a loving husband and devoted father."

Police want to hear from anyone who might have seen either the blue and white Yamaha motorbike or the green John Deere tractor before the crash.
