The family of a 32-year-old cyclist who died in crash on the A3 in Hampshire have paid tribute to him.

James Stephenson died when he was hit by a car on the southbound carriageway, near the Hindhead tunnel at Bramshott on New Year's Day.

His family said he would be remembered for his willingness to help others.

Police said a 33-year-old man from Waterlooville was arrested on suspicion of causing death by driving without due care and attention.

Mr Stephenson, from Liphook, had a wife, Lisa, and two daughters - three-year-old Faith and Ellie, aged 7 months.

He worked as the head chef at Applegarth Farm in Grayshott.

Police are still appealing for witnesses to contact them.
