FAMILY and friends of a passionate Bridgwater motorcyclist who died last week have been paying tribute to the "wonderful son" and "fantastic bloke" they have lost.

Andrew Dodd was killed on the A39 at Holford last Sunday, doing what he loved best - riding his beloved Honda motorbike.

This week Andrew's grieving mother Mary told the Mercury of "a happy person who lived life to the full", describing her son as "my rock".
