The family of a motorcyclist who died after a crash have paid tribute to their "shining light".

Julie Corben was riding her Harley Davidson motorbike when she collided with a Fiat Doblo at traffic lights, in Fareham, on Monday.

Her family said: "She left us doing what made her the happiest, riding a motorbike that roared like thunder."

Ms Corben, who was in her 50s, was described as "warm hearted, kind, compassionate, funny and free".

The statement said: "Julie Corben, mum, nanny, wife, daughter, sister, auntie and friend to many, touched a huge amount of lives before her own was taken from her far too soon.

"There are no words in any dictionary to describe the pain we as a family are feeling, but the massive outpouring of love that we have received goes a long way in easing our sadness.

"Her memory will never fade and we are proud to have had her in our lives."
