The family of the ex Royal Marine, who had part of his leg amputated after a car crash in 2007, has asked bikers to escort the funeral cortege from his family's home in South Wootton to the Catholic Church of the Holy Family.

The 37-year-old died after he was involved in a collision with another motorcycle during a race at Thruxton, Hampshire, on Sunday, August 6.

He rode for True Heroes Racing - a team of ex-service personnel who have suffered severe injuries.
