The family of Dylan Archer, a cyclist who died along with his friend Richard Smith at the Shoreham air crash, have paid tribute to him.

42 year-old Dylan was on a cycle ride with his friend Richard Smith on the bike that he loved and made himself.

His family said, " Dylan was a kind and loving father, partner, brother, grandson and friend. His dry humour and generous nature will be greatly missed by all who knew him."

"Dylan was a trusted and respected IT consultant, co-founder and Director of a Brighton IT company.

"He leaves behind Alice, his partner of 17 years, their two sons aged 15 and 12, his sister Ruth and two-year-old niece. He was adored by them all."

"The family are very touched by all the tributes, and thank everyone for their kindness and generosity."

"We would also like to extend our gratitude to Sussex Police, who have been amazing in helping us deal with this devastating loss. Their professional, supportive and caring staff have been a comfort to us all and made the whole dreadful experience more bearable."
