Mark Donnelly, 26, was killed in the crash at the junction of Holderness Road and Mount Pleasant in the early hours of Friday, November 1. He was riding his beloved Suzuki SV650 motorbike, which left the road. No other cars were involved. Now his childhood friend Jordan Wilson, 22, has paid tribute to the man he says has “cared and looked out for him” and was just a “lovely man”. The pair met when Jordan was “around seven or eight” and became firmer friends as they grew up. As well as paying tribute, Jordan has also set up a fundraising page to provide donations to help pay for Mr Donnelly’s funeral.

We were both keen riders and did Barton Bike Night this year together and had a brilliant night and took loads of pictures and videos. Floral tributes were laid at the scene “We had lots of laughs. He gave me a big bike that was 600CC around four months ago and we pushed it from his house to mine – it had flat tyres and we had to take it in turns to push it, we had a right laugh about that.” ‘Mark would do anything for anyone’ Jordan said his friend had a “heart of gold” and bec
