Hundreds of motorbikes led the funeral cortege on Friday (May 31) of a 'kind and generous' father who died in road traffic collision last month.

Members of the national Satan's Slaves biker group led the procession as a mark of respect to Samuel West whose granddad was a former president of the club.

The father-of-two died aged 31 after being involved in a collision in Exeter while on his motorbike on Saturday, April 20.

Bikers from Satan's Slaves led the cortege from Richard W Gegg and Sons, in Rolle Street, up towards Rolle Road before turning down Carlton Hill and on to the seafront.

From there, they headed to a crematorium in Exeter where a funeral service is being held.

Sam's widow Laura told The Journal: "Sam was just the most kind, generous, honest, genuine person you could ever meet. My favourite thing about him was that he wasn't fake at all."
