A MOTORCYLCIST, who was killed after being hit by a car, has had his life commemorated at a special memorial ceremony this week.
Friends and family of Stephen Whitehead gathered at Weston’s motorcycle park off Oxford Street on Thursday night, as a plaque was unveiled in his memory.
Flowers were laid at his favourite parking spot to coincide with the first Weston Bike Night of 2013.
The plaque was paid for by Mr Whitehead’s former employers, Disney Flooring Ltd.
The 56-year-old died in hospital on September 19, more than three weeks after suffering a severe neck injury in a crash in Locking Moor Road.
