The family of a man who died following a collision in Stradsett said he was the kindest man you could ever meet.

Nigel Reynolds, 53, died after his motorcycle was in collision with a Ford Transit van near to The Foldgate Inn at the junction of the A134 and A1122 at around 7.30am last Thursday.

Mr Reynolds, of West Dereham, was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn where he later died.

In a statement, his family said: “Nige was a family man, a husband to Lorraine, dad to Gavin, Dale and Chloe, grandad to Ellen, Isaac and Freya, as well as son to Beryl and Bryan, a brother, father-in-law, uncle and friend to many. 

“Nige loved his motorbikes and was a huge Moto GP fan, as well as being a lifelong Norwich City supporter.

“He served in the Royal Air Force for 22 years and more recently worked for Mars where during this time was able to help support the King’s Lynn Foodbank.

“Nige was the kindest man you could ever meet with the biggest heart. 

“He was loved by everyone who met him and was always happiest when surrounded by his family. Our lives will never be the same again.”

Last Friday, officers from Norfolk Police appealed for witnesses to the crash to call 101.
