Tributes have been paid to a motorcyclist who died in a crash in Ramsgate.
Brett Appleyard who was 24 was involved in a collision with a car in Stirling Way last Friday night - he died at the scene.
Police are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the collision.
"Brett will be terribly missed by everyone who knew him. He will always be my beautiful boy and the bestest big brother ever to his sister Casey. To his partner Lottie, who is mum to his unborn child, he was and still is her heart and her world.
"Brett was so very caring, loving and funny. He was pure energy. He loved to laugh and make others laugh too. He loved his family and friends very much and anything with an engine. He also loved fishing.
"He was so excited that he was becoming a dad in February and loved his baby so much that he was fit to burst. I’m so happy that he had been with Lottie for the scan that day, as he was beside himself with happiness.
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank the police and the paramedics who were there that awful night. They were all totally amazing and we are so grateful to them for trying so very hard and for being there for us."

It is the first time since last November that live animals have been transported though the port.
Animal campaigners temporarily blocked lorries en route to the Continent.
Thanet District Council says it's a legal trade and more exports are expected between now and the autumn.

An investigation is underway after part of a balcony collapsed on a residential street in Ramsgate.
The iron structure partially came away from the first floor of a property and ended up overhanging a walkway below before firefighters made the scene safe.
Firefighters were called to Augusta Road just after 9.30 this morning.
“Using a height vehicle as a crane, crews were able to remove the section of balcony and lower it to a safe location.
“The building was made safe and duty of care was handed over to the owner of the building.
“The cause of the balcony collapse isn’t known and there were no reported injuries.”
