A heartbroken family has paid tribute to a married couple who were killed in a horror crash last month.
Edward ‘Ted’ Trett, 68, and Heather MacGregor, 72, were injured in the incident shortly after 3:30 p.m. on June 25.
Police have received a report that a motorcycle with a sidecar collided with a Mitsubishi just in front of the New Kennels in Simonburn, southwest Northumberland, Live Chronicle reports.
The couple, from the Bradford area of Yorkshire, were treated by paramedics but unfortunately both were pronounced dead at the scene.
Their family paid tribute to the couple, saying, “Ted and Heather met through their long-standing passion for motorcycles.
“Both were very experienced racers who had traveled the world on two wheels.
“Having been very active in motorcycle clubs and the rally scene across the UK and across Europe since the 1960s, they have left a huge hole in the hearts of their families and many friends. ”
Sergeant Steve Chappell of the Northumbria Police Motor Patrol Department said: “This is a tragic incident which unfortunately claimed the lives of two people who had visited Northumberland while on vacation.
“Our hearts go out to the family and friends of Ted and Heather at this incredibly difficult time and we ask that their privacy be respected.
“Our investigation continues as we work to establish the circumstances that led to this collision and ask anyone with information or dashcam footage from the area at the time of the incident to contact us as soon as possible.”
Anyone with dash camera footage asks to contact the police by calling 101 or using the ‘Tell us something’ page on the force’s website, citing log number 0675 06/25 / 21.
