The family of a bike-mad dad who died after after a collision in Denton have paid tribute to him.

Scott Hall, 41, from Hyde

Scott Hall, 41, from Hyde, was riding his Honda motorbike on Hyde Road close to Morrisons when he was involved in the collision with a white Volvo V70 at 8:35pm on Friday 23 February.

He was taken to hospital following the tragedy but sadly died as a result of his injuries. The driver remained at the scene to speak to police officers and was treated by paramedics for shock. No arrests were made.

Scott’s family have paid tribute to the experienced rider, who had been riding since he was 18. They said: “Scott loved his motorbikes and they were a massive part of his life. He’d been riding since he was 18 and he rode all year round. Even though he had a car he still rode his bikes in winter.

“In the last year he had joined a local biker group so that he had like-minded people to ride with.

“He would also go mountain biking and liked to keep fit by training at the gym or at home. He looked after himself and rarely drank. He preferred to play his computer games than to go out drinking.   

“He was well liked and had a wide range of friends, both bikers and non-bikers and he was quite mischievous with a wicked sense of humour.

“He was a much loved son, brother, dad and uncle and will be greatly missed by all of us.”

Police Constable Paul Hailwood, of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “We have specially trained officers supporting Scott’s family at this incredibly difficult time and my thoughts are with them.

“Our investigation remains ongoing and I would continue to appeal for anyone who witnessed the collision or has dash-cam footage or relevant information to please get in touch.”
