A FAMILY have paid tribute to "much loved and talented" Jordan Wilson, aged 20, who died following a two-vehicle collision last week.

Mr Wilson, of Penrith, was a passenger in a Suzuki Swift when it was involved in a collision with a DAF flatbed HGV at 6am last Wednesday. He died of his injuries at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle, on Friday.

His family said: "Jordan was a much loved and talented young man. His great passion in life was music and he was establishing himself on the gig scene across Cumbria.

"He was the most kind, caring and sensitive person who brought great joy to everyone’s lives. He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him and will be loved forever."

Police are still appealing for witnesses who were travelling on the A66 around the time of 6am last Wednesday or who have a dashcam running and were travelling along the A66 between 5-30am and 6am.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Cumbria police on the 101 number.
