Tribute to Banbury biker killed in Northamptonshire crash

The family of a Banbury teenager who died after a crash in a Northamptonshire village have paid tribute to him.

Harry Dunn, aged 19, of Charlton, Banbury, was travelling on Park End, Croughton, on his Kawasaki motorcycle when he was in collision with a Volvo XC90 travelling in the opposite direction.

He was taken to John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford where he died a short time later.

His family have issued the following tribute:

“Our Harry loved life; his 19 years were always busy. Growing up as a twin and having three other brothers and a sister there was always competition which contributed towards Harry’s bubbly and outgoing nature.

“From the age of seven he shared a passion for riding motorbikes with his Gramps and step-dad. Harry was a free spirit who spent all his wages on fuel for his bike and loved to explore the countryside, with Portland Bill being one of his favourite places.

“As an avid football fan he followed in his Dad’s footsteps and held a season ticket at NTFC for a number of years. 

“His love for his family and friends outshone everything and made him the caring and loving young man he was. It’s not until now, with all the messages we have received, that we have come to realise how many people’s lives he has touched. 

“The loss of Harry is going to leave the biggest hole in our lives and he will truly be missed by all.”

Meanwhile, investigations into the collision at 8.30pm on Tuesday, August 27 are ongoing, with witnesses and anyone with information asked to call the Drivewatch Hotline on 0800 174615 regarding incident 478 of August 27, 2019.
