THE family of a young woman who died in a motorcycle collision near Taunton earlier this week have said 'she will never be forgotten.'

Destiney Rauh, from Upper Weston in Bath, was riding a motorbike in West Lyng at about 4.35pm on Sunday, February 4, when there was a collision involving a van near the junction with New Road.

Emergency services attended but sadly the 27-year-old died at the scene.

In a statement, her family said: “Our beautiful Destiney, you were taken from our lives too soon, and you will forever be missed and never forgotten. Love from all of your family.”

A spokesperson for Avon and Somerset Police said: "Our thoughts are with Destiney’s family at this difficult time.

"A specialist family liaison officer has been assigned to help support them.

"Enquiries into the collision are ongoing."
