Maldon district: Hundreds hit road to remember Brad and Abbey
5:00pm Monday 8th October 2012 in News
More than 200 people took to the road to pay a fitting tribute to motorbike-mad Bradley Cooper and his girlfriend Abbey Parker.
Bradley, 18, of South Woodham Ferrers, and Abbey, 17, of Mayland, died after a collision with two tractors in Lower Burnham Road, North Fambridge, on September 16.
They had been planning to take part in the 13th annual Essex Air Ambulance Motorcycle Run from Laindon to Harwich later the same day.
Last Sunday, friends and family took part in their own drive in remembrance of the young couple.
Starting at Laindon, the convoy, which included motorbikes and cars, made its way to the Pitsea flyover and then to the scene in North Fambridge.
Police closed the road while a two minute silence was observed, before a coordinated revving of bikes.
