RELATIVES of a 16-year-old boy who died following a collision at a Portsmouth motocross event have said he ‘lived life to the full.’

Bradley Hooper was taken to hospital via air ambulance following the collision at Down Farm in Headbourne Worthy at about 11.20am on Sunday but died of his injuries. It was organised by Portsmouth Motorcross Club.

His family said in a statement: ‘Bradley was full of life and lived life to the full. Sadly he has been taken from us at such a young age. He was kind, gentle, considerate, and made everybody laugh, and always had an infectious smile on his face. He loved playing jokes on people and making funny faces.’

Bradley started motorcross at six and was a keen sportsman. He had been due to sit his first GCSE on Tuesday.

The statement added: ‘God bless you dear Bradley you are always in our thoughts and our hearts, rest in heaven our dear Angel, ride that bike hard up there, we will see you soon xxxxxxx.’
