The family of a 21-year-old man who died when his motorbike was involved in an accident on the A10 has thanked those who tried to save him.

Zach was one of six sons and a statement at the inquest from his father Mark said that he had been devastated by his death.

Now the family have issued a statement which outlines how grateful they are for the efforts made on his behalf.

It said: "We as Zach's family would like to give our upmost thanks to the people who stopped to help Zach, witnesses and callers of 999.

"It gives us a great deal of comfort as a family to know that Zach was not alone during his last moments on this earth and that the good in some people shone through in a truly awful event.

"We are truly grateful for all of the emergency services, including the air ambulance, who did their absolute best to help Zach.

"A special mention is to go to PC James Lister who has been hugely supportive to us as a family in his role.

"Zach was the youngest of us six brothers and as brothers along side with our parents and grandparents are still struggling with his lose.

"Zach led a very proactive life, this was either riding his beloved Honda, listening to heavy metal music or working as a trainee vet which he excelled at.

"We as a family will never get to experience the joys of first children, or first house alongside his other future accomplishments in his life such as becoming a qualified vet nurse, becoming a biker instructor and volunteer for the blood bikes.

"Zach will always be remembered within his family and friends, we will continue to champion his name. Ride high little bro."
