THE devastated partner of a man who died after a motorbike crash near Cholmondeley Castle has described him as “a legend”.
Father-of-two Jonathan Lock, 39, who lived at Kingsmead, Northwich, died at the Countess of Chester Hospital two days after an accident on the A49 at 7.45am on Sunday, September 28.
Police say the former British karate champion was riding a black Suzuki GSXR 1000 towards Whitchurch when he lost control and crashed into a hedge, suffering “serious head injuries and internal damage”.
A statement released this week by Mr Lock’s partner Lindsey Burbridge, on behalf of all his friends and family read: “Jonathan was a loving and devoted father-of-two and partner to Lindsey.
“He was a five-time British karate champion and passionate about motorbiking. He always knew the right thing to do and had the right thing to say.
“He had an amazing sense of humour and touched so many people’s hearts. He was a legend and will be dearly missed. Jonathan – we will never forget you.”
Police are still appealing for any witnesses to the crash to come forward.
Anyone with information is asked to call PC Leah Booker at Crewe Specialist Investigation Unit on 0845 4580000.
An inquest will investigate the circumstances of the crash once police have gathered together all the available facts.
