A MOTORCYCLIST who died following a crash on the A456 Bewdley Bypass has been remembered as a "beautiful person."

Adam Robson, aged 47, died after a white Mercedes Vito van and a green Kawasaki Ninja motorbike collided on Sunday, June 2.

He ran Brookes Equestrian, a livery in Rock, for more than two decades with business partner Rachel Brookes, who competes in show jumping. 

Ms Brookes has said she is starting a campaign to improve the safety of the A456 Bewdley Bypass, which she has described as a "death-trap."

She said that he had only passed his motorcycle driving test a couple of months before the fatal incident. A funeral was held for him at Wyre Forest Crematorium on Friday (July 5).

Paying tribute, Ms Brookes, aged 45, said: "He was the nicest person around. Everybody knew him in Bewdley.

"We were together for 20-plus years, but we stayed as soul mates and have a business together.

"He always helped everybody out. He was just a beautiful person. He shouldn't have gone".

A 29-year-old man was arrested and taken into custody on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving after the crash.

West Mercia Police have confirmed the man remains on bail.

An inquest into the death of Mr Robson is set to be held at Stourport Coroner's Court on February 20 next year.

A spokesperson for West Midlands Ambulance Service said: "On arrival we discovered the motorcyclist, a man, in a critical condition.

"Ambulance staff immediately began administering advanced life support and specialist trauma care at the roadside. However, despite their best efforts, it sadly became apparent nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

"The driver of the van was assessed and discharged without needing to be taken to hospital."

Meanwhile, an action group and petition has been started by Bewdley resident Libby Marshall, calling for more safety measures to be put in place on the stretch of road.

This follows a three car-crash on the Bewdley Bypass on Sunday (July 7), where a woman was rushed to hospital and traffic brought to a standstill.
