A retired police officer from Redcar has been named as one of two bikers killed in a motorcycle crash on the North York Moors on Sunday.
Paul Dee, 63, spent 30 years with Cleveland Police.
He was killed after his black Norton motorcycle collided with a bike ridden by Graham Bowen, 56, from Stockton, on the B1257 near Stokesley on Sunday morning.
Both men died at the scene.
In a statement Mr Dee's family said:
The Chief Constable of Cleveland Police Richard Lewis said:
- A motorcyclist or cyclist is killed or seriously injured every hour on British roads.
- Two thirds of bike deaths occur on rural roads.
Mr Bowen's family did not provide a statement. North Yorkshire Police are appealing for witnesses.
