A CLEVEDON woman who died following a motorbike accident on Easter Monday has been described as fun-loving and now greatly missed.

Victoria Bodman was riding on the back of her partner, Stuart Fleetwood’s, Suzuki motorbike when they crashed while trying to avoid a car at Buckland Dinham near Frome on April 1.

The 37-year-old was taken to hospital but died from her injuries the following day.

Tributes have since been paid to the animal lover who was highly regarded by friends and colleagues.

Her 43-year-old sister Corinna Jenner, who lives near Bridgwater where they both grew up, said: “She was a fun-loving, very caring person.
