The uncle of a teenage motorcyclist who died after a collision on the Norfolk coast road is setting off on the Three Peaks Challenge to raise money in his memory.

Aiden Bailey, from Snettisham, suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene after his motorcycle was involved in a collision with a car on the A149 near the village on August 6 last year.

The 18-year-old baker's family described him as "such a sensitive, kind, caring, loving, funny son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, boyfriend and friend to so many".

Now Aiden's uncle Jordan Bailey, a 31-year-old carpenter from Snettisham, is set to climb Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in Cumbria and Mount Snowdon in Wales to raise funds for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

"On August 6, 2023, we received a call to say Aiden, my 18-year-old nephew had been in a collision while riding his beloved motorbike," he said.

"Family arrived at the scene as the East Anglian Air Ambulance did and they did everything possible to save him. Tragically Aiden didn’t survive.

"My family and I will be forever grateful for the efforts of all the emergency services that attended that day and the support since.

"This is obviously a cause that is very close to our hearts having seen and experienced what these amazing people do."

Mr Bailey's GoFundMe page has reached almost half of its £2,000 target within less than 24 hours.

He said he was "pretty confident" he and his friends would be able to complete the challenge in 24 hours, after they start climbing Ben Nevis at 5am on Friday, June 21.

"There's a good group of us," he said. "We're all doing a bit of training."
