Tribute Paid To Motorcyclist Killed In Sheppey Collision

The family of a man, who was killed in a road traffic collision in Queenborough on Sheppey, have described him as a 'proud father and family man'.

Harry Richard Higgins, of Hillside Road in Queenborough, died after he was involved in a road traffic collision in Main Road on Saturday (25th January) .

The 31-year-old was riding a purple Honda NES, at about 10.40am, when his bike was involved in a head on collision with a blue Honda CR-V travelling in the direction of Queenborough. He was later pronounced dead at the scene.

Harry's family have released the following tribute to the local media: 'Harry was a much loved father, son, uncle, nephew, brother and friend to many who will be sorely missed by all those that knew him. He died tragically doing something he loved - riding his motorbike - and his family are devastated at the news. He was a real family man and a proud father and it's hoped he will be remembered for the joy he gave to those closest to him. Harry's heart was always in the right place and he would do anything for anyone. Harry, you will be truly missed - behave yourself up there, all our love is sent to you and you will always be in our thoughts.'

The road was closed at 11.00am from the junction onto the A249 and was fully reopened again by 3.25pm.

Specialist investigators from Kent Police continue to appeal for witnesses to the collision. Anyone with any information, or who might have witnessed the collision, is asked to call the dedicated Serious Collision Investigation Unit Appeal Line on 01622 798538.
