More than 100 bikers turned out in tribute to a "motorbike mad" teenager who died in a crash in Wisbech just a few months after buying his dream red Suzuki.

The riders escorted Jack Green on his last ride as his coffin was carried in the side-car of a motorbike from his home in Sandringham Avenue, Wisbech St Leonard's Church in Leverington for his funeral on Tuesday (22).

On top of the side-car was a floral replica of his 'pride and joy', the motorbike he had saved so hard for to buy, and was riding on the day he died.

The 19-year-old sadly died at the scene of the collision, which involved a car, at the junction of Churchill Road and Elm Road on January 16, despite the efforts of paramedics, who spent over 40 minutes trying to save him.

His family, Natazha Chambers and dad Darren Green, sister Hannah Chambers, had asked for members of the motorcycling community to join the funeral cortege and the appeal was heard not only by Jack's friends but also by other fellow bikers who wanted to pay their respects.

Jack, who was busy saving for a mortgage to by a house with girlfriend Hannah Cornett, worked at Dawbarns and Sons in Harecroft Road, Wisbech.
