The family of a man who was killed when his car collided with a lorry on the A65 Skipton northern by-pass on December 10 have paid tribute to him.

Asad Siddiq, 24, from Barnoldswick , was driving his silver VW Polo along the road in the direction of Skipton when the collision occurred near the junction with Harrogate Road and The Bailey at around 5.50pm.

North Yorkshire Police said the lorry was travelling towards Harrogate while Mr Siddiq's vehicle was travelling in the opposite direction.

No details surrounding the cause of the incident have been released.

His family has said: "Asad was a much loved son, grandson, nephew, brother and a great friend to so many.

"He was one of the most kind, funny, caring and likeable men you could ever meet and always had a smile of his face and lived life to the full.

"We are all absolutely devastated and his loss is going to leave a huge hole in all our lives."

The family have requested privacy at this difficult time.
