The family of a Staffordshire police officer who died in a motorbike crash during a race on the Isle of Man paid tribute to "a much-loved son, partner, brother and uncle".
Traffic police officer Sergeant Chris Bradshaw, 39, from Tamworth, died in hospital after his bike was in a collision on the second lap of a race in the Manx Grand Prix.
The crash also left fellow competitor James Adam, an officer in the Royal Navy, dead at the scene. The 28-year-old was from Prestwick in Ayrshire.
Mr Bradshaw served as a police officer since 1992 and had worked across the West Midlands and Leicestershire police forces.
The "highly-skilled" officer had been serving as a traffic sergeant in the operations department based at Chelmsley Wood, Solihull, at the time he died.
In a statement released by West Midlands Police, Mr Bradshaw's family said: "Chris was a much-loved son, partner, brother and uncle who will be sadly missed by all of his family and friends.
"Chris died pursuing the hobby he loved, motorcycle racing, and was committed to enjoying his passion and sharing it with others; through racing on the Isle of Man since 2003 and instructing riders through the Institute of Advanced Motoring and the Bikesafe scheme."
Mr Bradshaw leaves behind his partner Diana Rushton, who is also a serving police officer with West Midlands Police.
Superintendent Rick Burgess, from West Midlands Police, said: "On behalf of West Midlands Police and all of Chris's many police friends and colleagues, I would like to pay tribute to a committed and highly-skilled officer who was passionate about his chosen role as a traffic officer.
"Chris will be sadly missed by officers and staff across the West Midlands and Leicestershire forces and by many friends he met through motorcycling."
