Motorcycle clubs from around the country turned out in force to mark the final ride of honour for popular biker Mick Collings, who was killed in the Didcot power station collapse.

Members riding Triumphs, Harley Davidsons and Suzukis accompanied the funeral cortege from his home in Brotton, Cleveland as his coffin was carried in a motorcycle sidecar.

Some had copies of a photo of Mr Collings, 53, smiling in his leathers, fixed to the windshield of their bikes.
