Family pay tribute to James Stephenson who died in a collision on New Year's Day

Hampshire Police have confirmed the name of a man who was killed in a collision on the A3 near Liphook on New Year's Day.

James Robert Stephenson, 32, from Liphook was on a bicycle when the accident involving multiple vehicles occurred. It happened shortly after 7.30am. A police investigation is underway into the exact circumstances that led to the crash.

Mr Stephenson's family paid tribute to him:

“James Stephenson was a true family man, married to Lisa with two daughters; Faith aged 3 and Ellie 7 months. He was the second child of Kevin and Caroline, a brother to Claire and Ben, and his sudden premature death has shocked them all.

“He was head chef at Applegarth Farm in Grayshott where he has led the development of the business over the last two and a half years. He was a keen golfer and an avid supporter of Leeds United Football Club.

“He will be remembered for his willingness to always help others and as a wonderful son to Caroline and Kevin, as a devoted husband to Lisa and father to Faith and Ellie.”
