Family release name of Bridgwater motorcyclist killed in collision
A BRIDGWATER motorcyclist who died in hospital after his bike was in collision with a tractor has today been named.
He was 56-year-old Nick Blance.
Mr Blance, who was described by his family as a “keen and experienced motorcyclist”, was involved in a collision near Wincanton at around 7.50pm on Wednesday.
An Avon and Somerset Police spokesman said Mr Blance was travelling from the Wincanton direction along Bayford Hill when he was involved in a collision with a tractor pulling a trailer.
He suffered serious injuries and was taken by air ambulance to the Dorset County Hospital, where he died later.
In a statement, his family said: “Nick was a keen and experienced motorcyclist who will be sorely missed by his partner Amy, his brother Andy and his friends Steve, Howard and other friends and family.
"As a family we would appeal for privacy while we grieve the loss of Nick and would encourage any witnesses to the incident to come forward."
Anybody with any information about the collision should call police on 101.
