A 22-year-old killed in a horror motorbike crash two days before Christmas was set to become a father for the first time in just three months – his grieving girlfriend has revealed.
Lewis Taylor was out riding his motorbike in convoy with other riders on December 23rd when his bike crashed into a red Toyota Yarris.
He was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said at the time the rest of the convoy made off from the scene and when officers attended the motorbike had also been removed.
It has since been recovered.
Now, his devastated girlfriend – who is six months pregnant – has begged anyone who knows anything about the crash to come forward because she "needs justice for her baby's dad".
Mental health worker Kayleigh Ruth paid emotional tribute to Lewis on Thursday as she made the impassioned plea – and revealed the fatal accident had taken place on her other daughter's birthday.
Kayleigh said: "Lewis was a well-loved step-dad, boyfriend and daddy to be.
"I’m due to give birth to our daughter in March and Lewis couldn’t wait to be a dad.
"He was a happy, outgoing person who was always smiling and would help anyone."

She added on Facebook:"I will never ever forget your last words to me 'oi big baby give me a kiss' to my moody morning face. I will treasure that day till the day I die. 02.40am 23.12.2010. My daughter's birthday. 13.27pm 23.12.2020 – my other daughters dad's death.
"I am begging anyone who has seen what happened to please come forward I need justice for my baby's dad even if it is an anonymous report.
"Someone can not get away with killing my boyfriend and taking him away from this world.
"How can you send a message praising him for how far he's come by him setting up his own business and be so content and happy in a relationship with your soulmate for them to be gone forever 15 days later? This will never ever make sense.

“I would ask anybody who witnessed the collision and has not yet been spoken to by police, or anyone who has dashcam or CCTV showing the collision, to contact us.”
