The joint funeral of a teenage couple who were killed in a horrific motorbike crash in North Fambridge will take place tomorrow.

Hundreds of family and friends are expected to pay tribute to Bradley Cooper, 18, and Abbey Parker, 17, a hairdresser, who died in the crash in Lower Burnham Road on September 16.

Bradley’s mum, Donna, requested that friends of Bradley should wear cheerful clothes, no jeans, and Abbey’s friends should wear leopard print at the 3pm service at St Mary’s Church in South Woodham Ferrers.

Abbey’s close friend Kezia Gregory, 17, of Ramsden Heath, recalls Abbey’s love for leapord print.

She said: “Me and Abbey always had competitions on who could wear the most leopard print."
