A biker who died in a crash following a crash on Friday night has been named as a dad-of-three.

Craig Voyce was killed following a collision with a car at the junction of Gidea Park’s Main Road and Heath Drive shortly before 10.50pm.

He was rushed to hospital but died at 2.49am the following morning.

Friends have paid tribute to Craig, who was engaged, on social media.

Ben Adams, who has set up a JustGiving page to raise money for the funeral, wrote: “We would love to help give Craig the send off he deserves. Those that knew Craig will know that he was one of a kind.

“He has left a mark on all those that got the chance to know him. He will be missed dearly.”

A 51-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by careless driving and has been released on bail to a date in late November.

Any witnesses or anyone with information should contact police on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
