Dozens of bikers headed a striking funeral procession for a popular doorman who died suddenly at the age of 28.

Dad-of-three Paul Pearson passed away last month at home in Avenham, Preston, where he lived with his dad, Paul Snr. Mourners gathered today to remember Paul and celebrate his life. Some wore red t-shirts with Paul’s photo on the back, and his coffin was decorated with soft toys. A procession of leather-clad motorbikers set off from Paul’s mum’s home in Fulwood, leading the cortege to Preston crematorium.
