Adam Featherstone, aged 22, crashed into a road sign while he was riding his motorbike along Oldfield Road, Stannington, at 11.45pm last Saturday.

He was taken to hospital but died as a result of his injuries two days later.

In a statement issued by his heartbroken family after his death, Adam was described as ‘one in a million’.
