GRIEVING family and friends have left tributes at a crash site.

Last night, a shrine for Julie Corben had been set up with bunches of flowers and a model motorbike following a fatal crash in Fareham.

The flowers and bike were joined by a biker’s shirt and hand-written notes by loved-ones.

Mrs Corben, from Hook Lane, in Warsash, was killed at the scene after her black Harley Davidson collided with a Fiat Doblo on Monday afternoon.

Tributes left at the crash site included ones from her daughters.

One read: ‘Mum, I could not have asked for a better mum.

Julie would have been fairly distinctive as she was wearing a black jacket and black crash helmet and riding a black Harley Davidson.

‘You gave me the best life ever. You are my inspiration.

‘I love you so much. Don’t know how I am going to cope.

‘I need a cuddle. You will never, ever be forgotten.

‘I miss you, I love you so much. Jade xxxx.’

Another from her husband added: ‘Missing you already my wife and best friend.’

Friends also left flowers and cards. One said Mrs Corben, 55, was the ‘happiest lady.’

It read: ‘Julie, you are by far the nicest, happiest lady I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.’

Police are still appealing for witnesses to the crash which happened at the junction of The Avenue and Catisfield Road. They have spoken to the driver of the Fiat, a 61-year-old from Gosport, who was left shaken following the collision.

Sergeant Adrienne Jerram said: ‘We would like to know more about the motorcycle prior to the incident.

‘Julie would have been fairly distinctive as she was wearing a black jacket and black crash helmet and riding a black Harley Davidson.’

Anyone with information should call Sgt Jerram at the Serious Collision Investigation unit on 101, quoting Operation Proof.
