The family of a 70-year-old who died in a collision in Wilmslow have paid tribute to him.

Leonard Royle, from Wilmslow, was the motorcyclist involved in a collision with a silver Vauxhall Astra.

In a tribute, his family said: "We are deeply broken by the tragic collision that has left us without Len, he was a kind caring man and loving husband to Christine, Len will be missed by all."
