The family of a "wonderful" young man who died after his quad bike hit a tree have spoken of their heartache.
Michael Stickells suffered head injuries when his red Honda vehicle crashed in Finn Farm Road, Kingsnorth.
The 22-year-old was airlifted to a London hospital in a critical condition, but died two days later.
In a joint tribute, Mr Stickells' family said today: "Our son was a wonderful young man.
"He would help anyone who needed it. He was honest and reliable. A son, brother, uncle, grandson, boyfriend and so much more – we're so proud of him.
"He took pride in himself and lived life to the full. He has achieved so much for one so young. He will be sadly missed by everyone who knew him.
"Our lives will never be the same, losing him is so painful, the love we shared can never be replaced."
Kent Police are appealing for witnesses to the crash, at about 11.10am on Saturday, December 8.
