The family of a Rushden man who died in a fatal road accident have been remembering him.

Martin Nurton, 33, died after he was involved in an accident in Milton Keynes last Friday, September 7.

He ran Horizon Rider Training in Milton Keynes and taught hundreds of people how to safely ride motorcycles.

His wife, Suzanne Simmons, said: “I feel extremely lucky to have not only met my soul mate, but to have been with him for 10 wonderful years. Martin was brilliant to be around; he was fun, kind, caring and extremely supportive, and I know my life, as well as the lives of others close to him, has been enriched by him.

“He was outgoing and always making people laugh, whether it was with his jokes, or because he’d said something silly, and I as well as his friends and close family have an endless number of stories about him and the wonderful time we shared together.

“For the past seven years Martin had been running Horizon after his mother and father started the company many years ago.

“Martin’s passion was motorcycling, so teaching others to ride was not only enjoyable for him, but something he was naturally good at.

“He was an exceptional rider, not only on the road but on the track too, and I will miss seeing him on a motorcycle and the great advice he was always happy to offer. Both myself and the Horizon team would like to thank everyone for their support at this time.”
