The family and friends gathered at the Basingstoke Cremmatorium this morning to celebrate the life of of Matt Harris. 

The father-of-four was involved in a road traffic collision at the beginning of January near Popley Way. 

Officers pronounced him dead at the scene after his Honda motorbike colided with a car at 6.30pm on January 2. 

Scores of bikers from all over the borough took part in the funeral procession this morning. 

Close friend, Matthew Cooke, launched a fundraising appeal to offer support to Mr Harris family which exceeded the suggested amount within a number of weeks. 

The money has helped to cover some of the funeral costs as well as help provide for his families futures.
