Tributes have been paid to a popular Angus man who died in a motorcycle accident.
Father-of-two David Spink from Arbroath died following the collision with a works van in Ferryden, near Montrose on Monday.
Paramedics rushed to the biker’s side at around 1.45pm but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Mr Spink was described as “a great boyfriend” and “the best daddy” to sons Maddox and Kaiden by his partner of 11 years, Stacey Cunningham.
Ms Cunningham commented on social media: “I have just lost the man who made my life complete.
“He was a great boyfriend and the best daddy to our two beautiful boys.
“I love you so much and our life won’t be the same without you.”
The former Arbroath Academy pupil worked as a fire prevention engineer with Sabre Safety Ltd, based in Cupar.
It is understood Mr Spink, who studied construction at Dundee and Angus College, had passed his motorcycle test earlier this month.
Craig Road was closed for six hours on Monday to allow crash investigators to study the scene and for the white Peugeot and Honda motorcycle to be removed.
The motorist in the van, a driver for carpentry firm Buchan & Coull, was uninjured.
A police spokesman said: “Police Scotland, Tayside Division can confirm a motorcyclist who suffered fatal injuries as a result of a road traffic collision at Craig Road, Ferryden, Montrose at 1.45pm on Monday 28 September has now been identified.
“Inquiries into the full set of circumstances of the incident are ongoing and Tayside Division would appeal for anyone who may have information that could assist officers with their inquiries to contact Tayside Division on 101.”
