A tribute has been paid to motorcyclist Charlie Sherman, 22, of Devizes who died after an accident while he was on his way to work in Trowbridge last Thursday.

Mr Sherman, who studied at Plymouth University, worked as an engineer for DTR VMS Limited at the White Horse Business Park, Trowbridge. 

He had worked there for about two years, the firm previously being based at Bumpers Farm, Chippenham.

The firm’s human resources manager Sian Widdicombe said: “Charlie was intelligent, pleasant, friendly, very hard working and fun. He’s a great loss.

"He was a very talented engineer who was never afraid to show initiative and leadership and enjoyed really good working relationships with employees and suppliers.

"He will be hugely missed, he was such a nice guy.”
