“Ryan was a one of a kind”: Family pay tribute to motorcyclist Ryan Brindley

The family of Ryan Brindley – a motorcyclist who died in a fatal collision in Dinton last week (22nd December 2021), have paid tribute to the “man who was loved by so many”.

The family wrote, “We would like to express our sincere thanks to everybody for their kind words since the passing of Ryan.

“Clive, Lee, Ethan, Hayley, his children and the whole of the Brindley family are still trying to come to terms with what has happened but are grateful for everybody’s love and support.

“Ryan was a unique, one of a kind man who was loved by so many and will never be forgotten.

“Although there are many questions yet to be answered once further details emerge, we would like to thank Wiltshire Police for acting so quickly – this has been the smallest comfort at an incredibly difficult time.”

Ryan, 43, died following a collision on the B3089 at approximately 7pm last Wednesday night (22nd December 2021).

Since, a man from Mere has been charged with murder in relation to the fatal collision in Dinton.

Currently, Paul Barrett, aged 42, of White Road, Mere, is remanded in custody ahead of his next appearance at Crown Court today (29th December 2021).

Det Insp Simon Childe, who is the Senior Investigating Officer, commented, “I would like to start by offering my sincere condolences to the family of the victim and we will continue to support them throughout this with specialist officers.

“This charge has come through hard work and dedication of not just those in the Major Crime Investigation Team but all areas of Wiltshire Police.

“I would also like to thank the local community for their support and patience, particularly today when we had to close the road again as part of our investigation.”

The police ask that the privacy of the family is respected at this difficult time.
