Update: Tributes paid to motorcyclist who died in accident at Blyford

Tributes have been paid to a motorcyclist today, whose death at Blyford over the weekend has left a 'great big hole in lots of people's hearts and lives'.

Ian Wollin, from Wenhaston, died yesterday morning following a road traffic accident on the B1123 Southwold Road, Blyford, near Halesworth, at around 10am.

It is believed that the silver Kawasaki motorcycle Mr Wollin was riding collided with the verge and left the road. He sustained serious injuries and died at the scene.

The 36-year-old's family released a statement earlier today and said: 'Ian was a son, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, nephew and cousin.

'He was a good natured man with a fun sense of humour and who loved his home, life and motorbike. He had lots of great friends and Ian was always happy to stop and chat to anyone about anything and help anyone.
