A CYCLIST who died after a crash with a car in Terrick has been hailed as a ‘real character’ by his employer.

Mark Alan Camber, 48, died at the scene following the collision on Nash Lee Road at around midnight on Monday.

Mr Camber, a former Mandeville School pupil, had worked at King’s Farm Shop in Terrick as a butcher since 1985 under Garry King.

Mr King described Mr Camber as ‘quiet’ and a ‘good worker’.

“He was a very conscientious employee,” said Mr King.

“Mark always kept himself to himself, and had worked here so long he became part of King’s Farm.

“It will never be quite the same here without him. Everyone knew him – all the customers and staff.

“He was also a real character as, while he was quiet, he had a very dry sense of humour.

“When he did talk, some of the things he’d come out with were hilarious.”

Two men were arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and another on suspicion of obstructing police.

They have all been bailed until May 24.
