His son (pictured with his father) has joined other family members in paying tribute to the 65-year-old.

In a statement, he said: “It is with deepest regret that I announce the death of my father, Donald Young (Duck), who was involved in a tragic road traffic collision in Wolsingham on Saturday.

“He was a much loved father, grandfather, father in law, brother and uncle and will be sadly missed.

“I wish to thank everyone for their support and ask to be left so that we can grieve in peace.”

The collision took place at around 10.45am outside of Bradley Burn Cottage.
