The family of a 15-year-old boy who was killed while cycling on holiday in Cumbria has released a tribute calling him "an absolutely wonderful and loving son".
Jake Anthony Knott, from East Bergholt in Essex, died on Saturday after being hit by a van at Mecklin Beck, Holmrook, near Seascale.
The driver of the van, a man aged 45, was uninjured.
Jake's family said he had been "so happy" to be in the lakes and mountains where he spent his last hours.
"Jake was a keen footballer, cyclist and sportsman, a good friend to so many and an absolutely wonderful and loving son.
“Jake had a gentle but competitive nature, an infectious laugh, cheeky smile and a sharp and witty sense of humour.
“Jake's shocking and tragic passing leaves a chasm in the lives of those that knew him. The hearts of his family who adored him will be forever broken.
“Jake, may your soul soar in the beautiful lakes and mountains where you spent your last hours. You were so happy to be there.
“Rest in peace our darling Jake.”
