TRIBUTES have poured in for a teenager who tragically lost his life following a motorcycle accident yesterday.

Owen Jones, 17, from Crawshawbooth, Rossendale, died from his injuries in hospital yesterday following an electric motorbike accident in Loveclough on Wednesday.

The Lancashire Telegraph opened a book of condolence for Owen this morning, and many have left notes fondly remembering him.

Many shared memories of how Owen would often be the joker of the pack, making people laugh, but also spoke of his caring and loyal nature.

Leah Thorpe wrote: “Rest in peace sweet boy! Such a lovely soul. A great tragedy, you will never be forgotten.”

Declan Walmsley said: “Rest in peace pal, what an absolute top lad.

"Best mate since I first met you eight years ago. Funniest guy going and the most caring and loving guy, love you bro.”

Sam Ingham added: “Always been a good mate and a good laugh, proper top man.

"Kind hearted and loved by everyone. Rest in peace mate will always think of you.”

Harry Wolstenholme said: “Would just like to say my thoughts are with all of Owen’s friends and family.

"He was a really good lad, always first to laugh and fiercely loyal to his pals and it’s a such a shame that this had to happen. Rest easy Owen mate, your memory will live on.”

Imogen Jackson wrote: “Rest in peace Owen. You will always be remembered. You were so loved and so cared for. Sending my love to all family and friends.”

Jordon Thompson added: “Rest in peace my mate. One of the soundest guys I’ve ever met, we’ll make sure your never forgotten bro. Rest easy.”

Some people also took to social media to pay tribute to the teenager.

Posting on Facebook, Lee Gueller said: "I can’t explain or put in to words what a genuinely good boy Owen was.

"He was a hard worker, even working on weekends while he was still at school, polite, smart, funny, loving and genuine.

"For those that know his family will know that the The Jones’s are one of the nicest families you could ever wish to meet.

"Heaven has definitely gained a new angel and Owen will be the biggest angel up there.

"Owen I will miss your smile when I’d barge through the front door with two bags full of takeaway which we used to demolish with in minutes."

No other vehicles were involved in the incident which led to Owen's tragic death, and police are now appealing for help to try and piece together the circumstances which led to the teen's passing.

People are asked to check if they have any video or dashcam footage which could assist, and if people can help they are asked to email information to or call 101, quoting log 1383 of Wednesday, May 11.
