The motorcyclist killed in a crash in Devonshire on Tuesday has been named as Anthony Shawn Smith.

Mr Smith, 51, from Pembroke, worked for the Department of Marine and Ports.

He was found unconscious in nearby trees by a member of the public at about 7.10am.

He was taken to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital by ambulance, where he was pronounced dead.

Transport minister Zane DeSilva said: “It is with heartfelt regret that we recognise the passing of one or our very own.

“On behalf of the Government, and colleagues from the Department of Marine and Ports, I join the community in extending our deepest condolences to the family of Anthony Smith.

“This tragic incident reinforces the fragility of human life and our hearts go out to all of those mourning his passing.”
