A duo who live in a supported living home have fulfilled their boyhood ambition of riding a Harley Davidson motorbike.

Lee Lambert, 43 and Michael Gillard, 65, live at Dell View supported living service in Lowestoft and it has always been the pair's dream to ride on one of the iconic motorbikes.

This dream came true after Lee talked about his love of the motorbikes and staff quickly sprang into action.

Discussing the experience, Daisy said: “It was wonderful to see how much enjoyment Lee and Michael got from the experience.
