Police are continuing their inquiries and anyone with information is asked to contact them.

Konnor’s family have been made aware, and tributes for the 23-year-old have poured in on social media, but they are asking for their privacy to be respected during the 'difficult time'.

Peter Henderson of the North East Road Policing Unit said: “Our thoughts are with Konnor’s family and friends at this difficult time.  Our enquiries are still ongoing and anyone who witnessed the collision and hasn’t already spoken to officers, should call 101, quoting reference 0223 of 19 December.”
