Hatfield man pays respects in Wootton Bassett

A BIKER has joined 10,000 others in paying homage to Wootton Bassett and all it does for fallen soldiers.

Hatfield man Neil Langley took part in the charity ride-by through the Wiltshire town as a representative for motorbike charity Serv.

Mr Langley volunteers for Serv Herts and Beds, which carries supplies from the national blood bank to hospitals, saving valuable NHS resources.

He said: “It’s a great way to raise money for a worthy cause, Afghan Heroes, and to pay respect to the fallen soldiers and to the residents of Wootton Bassett.

“All along the route people young and old cheered, clapped and waved flags. We responded by waving back, sounding our horns and even carrying out drive-by high fives.
