David Holmes: Head-cam footage of motorcyclist's fatal crash

Police have released footage of a motorcyclist's final moments, captured on his helmet camera before he collided with a car.

David Holmes, 38, was riding at 97mph when he died on the A47 at Honingham, Norfolk, in June last year. He collided with a Renault Clio as it turned at a junction.

Police said the driver, who admitted not seeing Mr Holmes or the car travelling behind, was prosecuted in April.

Mr Holmes' family allowed the film's release in a bid to try stop more road deaths.

His mother Brenda, of North Walsham, said: "I know he rode fast, he loved speed, he loved motorbikes.

"This isn't an easy thing to do but I just hope that someone benefits from it."
