Over 1,500 bikers took part in the tribute, with local rock band ‘The Tuesdays’ dedicated Eric Clapton’s ‘Would you know me in heaven’ to everyone concerned.

Bikes started arriving about 4pm and by 7pm the town was packed full of motorbikes, trikes and scooters from all over the county and beyond.

World champion Bike Trial rider Adam Moorwood from Derbyshire entertained the crowds with his amazing skills and the obstacle course was provided by Tong Engineering and Sid Dennis and Son of Skegness.
