The family of a man from Southport who sadly died following a road traffic collision yesterday, Thursday 19 October, have issued a tribute.

James Huyton, aged 32, was riding a motorbike when he was involved in a collision with a black Mercedes car at the junction of Bispham Road and Wennington Road at around 6.50am.

Emergency services attended and sadly James was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver stopped and is assisting officers with the ongoing investigation.

In a short tribute, his family said: “James Anthony Huyton, known locally as Jay or Ginge, was from Southport. He was a loving daddy, fiancé, son, brother, uncle and friend. He will be missed by all.”

Merseyside Police is still appealing for any information to assist the ongoing investigation.

Detective Sergeant Andy Roper, from Merseyside Police’s Matrix Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: “Our thoughts remain with James’ family and friends following this tragic incident.

“Any road death causes a huge amount of heartache to family and friends left behind. My team will work relentlessly to get answers for James’ family, who continue to be supported by specialist officers.

“The help of the public is paramount to assist in our investigation and I would ask anyone who has not yet made contact with my investigation team, who witnessed this collision or who has any information to please contact us.

“Alternatively, if you were driving in the area at the time of the crash, I ask that you please check your dashcam footage in case you have captured something which will assist in the investigation. Every piece of information or footage could be vital in establishing what happened.”

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information is asked to call our Matrix Roads Policing Unit on (0151) 777 5747, email, or DM @MerPolCC on Twitter quoting reference 23001026988. You can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
