Man, 38, dies in accident

TRIBUTES have been paid to a father-of-three who died in a motorbike crash at the weekend.

Mark Golding, 38, from Stoke by Clare, died in an accident on the B1057 near Steeple Bumpstead at around 10.55am on Saturday.

Mr Golding’s motorcycle was involved in a collision with a Citroen car, driven by a man from the Braintree area. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

His best friend, Ian Davies, said: “Mark was a wonderful husband to Alison and devoted father to his daughters, aged six, three and one.

“Mark worked in the printing industry and had worked for a company in Ipswich for the last six months.

“His main interest in his life was his family, and he was a keen motorcyclist. All the family members are going to miss Mark greatly.”

The road was closed for some time as police officers carried out an investigation into the cause of the crash.

Any witnesses are urged to contact the Dunmow road policing unit on 0300 333 444.
