A British man and woman have died in a tragic motorbike crash while travelling in Vietnam, police have confirmed.

The pair, from Leicester, were riding through the Quang Nam Province in Hanoi early on Monday morning when they crashed into a power pole.

Local news reports have identified them as Denver Barfield and Thompson Peth May, who were staying at a hotel on Cửa Đại Street.

Officers told Viet Nam News that they were travelling on one bike from Hoi An City to Dien Ban Commune when they crashed at the side of the road at around 3.40am.

No information has been released about who was controlling the motorbike, or if anybody else was involved in the crash, reports Leicestershire Live.

Tributes were paid to Mr Barfield, a marketing graduate from Aston University in Birmingham, who was described as kind, caring and “extraordinary”.

“Denver my heart hurts writing this, it still doesn’t feel real,” one friend wrote.

“You were the most extraordinary person I have ever had the honour of meeting and it breaks my heart to think that I’m never going to see you again.

“You always made everyone’s day a little better in some kind of way and I cant stop thinking about all of the memories I have of you being one of the best friends anyone could ever have. You are so loved and will be missed by every single person who has known you, rest in peace.”

Another wrote: “RIP my bro Denver Barfield, you was such a good lad. I’ve had so many funny times with you, when we used to work together and in school. Always so kind and got such a good heart. You’ll deffo be missed.”

A third friend posted said: “I can not believe what I have read tonight. Such sad news! We had so many memories together at skating and endless conversations when we was younger.

“Such a kind & caring lad! Another life taken too soon with so much to live and look forward to.”

The case has been transferred to the province-level police to carry out further investigations, according to local reports.
