He wanted to give his friend one last motorbike ride.

It was Lee Gardner's funeral on Thursday and his close friend Stuart wanted to organise a convoy of bikers to give him the send-off he deserved.

Lee Gardner passed away after he was involved in an accident while on his motorbike last month.

Graham, Lee's Dad got in contact with KLFM after the funeral. He said:

"I've never experienced anything like this, to lose a son was so harrowing but to see the outpouring of love and affection towards myself and my family was overwhelming.

"Along the road as we made our journey people bowed there heads in respect, we drew comfort from those who came to the church and crematorium.

Lee loved motorcycles which is why Stuart wanted to get as many as he could in his funeral procession

"My deepest respect goes to over 85 bikers that escorted Lee my son on his last journey, the sight of you all and the way you roared those engines as he passed you was awesome.

"The way you guided the traffic along the route was amazing  thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts."
