A SCOOTER rider killed in an ac­ci­dent near Porth­madog has been named as Jacky Owen (pic­tured).

The 49-year-old grand­mother, who col­lided with a lorry on the A487 shortly after 2pm on Sun­day, has been re­mem­bered as hav­ing a “heart of gold”.

Her fam­ily said in a state­ment re­leased on Mon­day: “To those who knew Jacky, she was the most lov­ing, car­ing per­son you could ever meet.

“She was a de­voted carer and would vol­un­teer at a mul­ti­ple abil­i­ties club who sup­port vul­ner­a­ble adults.”

They de­scribed Ms Owen, from the Stoke on Trent area, as “a lov­ing wife, mother, daugh­ter, sis­ter and dot­ing grand­mother”, adding: “Her fam­ily were ev­ery­thing to her.

“When not work­ing she en­joyed mu­sic, scoot­ers and help­ing peo­ple. She was very well re­spected in the scooter com­mu­nity.

“She hails from a fam­ily of bik­ers and had been rid­ing scoot­ers for the last four years.

“She en­joyed days out on the scooter and would reg­u­larly visit North Wales.

“She will be sadly missed by ev­ery­one who knew her. Our hearts are bro­ken and life will not be the same with­out her.”

Po­lice are ap­peal­ing for wit­nesses to the col­li­sion near Dol­ben­maen to come for­ward.
