AN emotional tribute has been held for a young dad-to-be who was killed in Redditch.

Bradley Reuben died following a crash on Ravensbank Drive, Moons Moat Industrial Estate, in the early hours of last Wednesday.

The 22-year-old BMX enthusiast was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

It involved a supermoto motorcycle which is understood to have collided with a stationary DAF Truck.

Following the tragic incident a Facebook page was set up in Brad's memory and a celebration of his life, including a balloon release, was planned at Redditch Skatepark.

The special event took place on Saturday and saw hundreds of brightly coloured balloons released into the air.

Posting on Facebook, Redditch Skatepark said: "You we're loved by many Brad. You were a big part of us. Ride high Bro."
