The family of a 72-year-old man who was killed in a collision on the A149 at Weybourne earlier this month has paid tribute to “a loving husband and father”.

Terry Redding, from North Walsham, suffered fatal injuries when the Kawasaki motorcycle he was riding was involved in a collision with a silver Honda and silver Nissan on June 6.

In a statement released earlier today, his family said: “He was a loving husband and father and we will miss him greatly.”

At the time of the accident emergency services were called, including a crew from the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA). Captain Wayne Goudie flew Dr Antonio Bellini and CCP Andy Downes to the location and the medics worked alongside their East of England Ambulance Service colleagues to treat Mr Redding.

A spokesman from the EAAA said: “Despite the best efforts of all those on scene, the patient died.

“Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time.”

One of the last major accidents to happen on that stretch of road was in 2007 when young chef Daniel Bayle, 20, died when his high performance Corsa GSi crashed on a bend along the A149.

Mr Bayle was driving back from work at the Weybourne Pheasant, when his car hit a tree on a bend just outside Sheringham.

Police are still appealing for any witnesses to this collision are asked to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Team at Norfolk Police on 101.

  • Whilst I realise that the EAAA needs publicity in order to help raise funds was it really necessary to name the EAAA crew involved in this particular case? Given that there were others involved in trying to save this poor mans life it appears that the only ones that are considered important enough to mention by name by the EDP are the crew of the EAAA. Don't 'ordinary' paramedics and ambulance technicians save lives as well? Perhaps it is sometimes better to just say that the crew of the EAAA attended rather than infer that they are superior to other clinicians?
