The North West Blood Bikes Lancs & Lakes – who transfer blood supplies between hospitals in the region – are paying tribute to one of their own.

Approximately 50 bikes are due to ride on Thursday (14 July) on a route through the North of the city in memory of Marcel Falloon.

Congestion is likely as the vehicles make their way from St Andrews Church to Preston Crematorium from 1.50pm.

A spokesman for the group said: “With the assistance of Lancashire Constabulary, junctions along the route will be temporarily closed to allow the cortege of approximately 50 vehicles to pass through.
