Tina Rose died last month after suffering from a brain haemorrhage.

Mrs Rose was a fan of motorbikes, owning a Harley Davidson herself.

Around 130 local riders came out to help Mrs Rose’s family celebrate her life.

“All three of her children were gobsmacked,” said Sarah Hutton, Mrs Rose’s friend who organised the cortege with her motorbike group Free Bird.
