A motorbike rider who died in a collision at St Ives on Tuesday has been officially named.

Paul Gray, aged 61, died after being involved in a crash with a car just after 5.30pm on September 7.

Officers were called just after 5.30pm following the collision between Mr Gray's Suzuki GSXR motorcycle and a Daewoo Matiz on Old Coach Road.

Mr Gray, from the St Ives area, sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The occupants of the car were not injured.

Mr Gray was a marshal with the annual Martin Jennings Memorial Motorcycle, which is due to take place this Sunday, subject to confirmation later today after a decision is made on this weekend's weather forecast.

A minute's silence is always observed at Beacon for Martin Jennings and all other bikers who have lost their lives on the roads of Cornwall, when Mr Gray's name will be mentioned.

Writing on the event's Facebook page, organiser Dave Saunby said: "Paul Gray, was a dedicated member of the MJMA (Martin Jennings Marshals Association), and will be sorely missed by all that knew him.

"My sincere condolences to his family and friends."

Old Coach Road was closed for nine hours while the scene was examined by a specialist forensic collision investigator.

Now Devon and Cornwall Police is asking for any witnesses who saw what happened to come forward.

A force spokesperson said: "Officers from the Alliance Roads Policing Team are investigating the circumstances surrounding the collision and are appealing for witnesses.

"They would also like to hear from any motorists who may have relevant dash cam footage."
