The family of a motorcyclist who died in a crash on the M27 near Fareham have described him as a 'dedicated father, loving partner, son and brother'.

The relatives of 26 year old Joseph Watts (pictured right) from the Lee area of Romsey have been remembering him, nine days on from the collision near junction 9 of the motorway.

Joseph’s family have released the following tribute:

“Joseph Watts was a dedicated father, loving partner, son and brother.

“He loved nature, adventure, travelling, fatherhood, and was passionate in his career as a groundsman. He was always to be found with a smile on his face.

“Whilst his life was tragically cut too short, he lived it to the full and will be missed dearly by all the lives that he impacted.”

Police continue to ask anyone who witnessed the collision, or captured it on dashcam, to call 101 quoting Operation Kira.
