Tributes have been paid to a biker killed in a collision with a car on the edge of Dundee.

Carnoustie man Graeme Bell died when his motorcycle was involved in a collision with a black Volkswagen Golf on the A930 at Barry just before 3pm on Friday.

It is understood the motorbike enthusiast, 27, was travelling to work at Cupar Motorcycles from his home when the accident happened.

His wife Jenni was too upset to speak, but responding to a wave of tributes posted online, she said: “Thank you so much for all your kind comments.

“It’s comforting to know he was so well-liked and respected.

“He was my world and I was his but there was still plenty room for his passion for his beloved bikes.

“He was the best and he has been taken from us all too soon.”

Cupar Motorcyles director Paul Weinberger said: “He was one of the best employees we have ever had and he was loved by everybody.

“He was very popular. He didn’t have any enemies and he was a very easy guy to get on with.”

Mr Bell had worked at the motorcycle shop, which was closed on Saturday as a mark of respect, for more than two years.

Posting online, sister Louise Bell described her brother as “one in a million”.

She said: “Seeing all these nice comments makes me feel even more proud to call him my bro.

“Words can’t describe the pain we all feel and it doesn’t feel real just now. I’m just waiting for him to call me or walk in.

“Life will never be the same. Love you so much bro.”

Investigations into the cause of the accident are continuing.
