Tributes have been paid to a young biker who died after an explosion at a flat just days before Christmas.

Frazer Livesey, 20, of Heysham, was fatally injured when a motorbike he was repairing burst into flames.

Frazer volunteered for two years at Regent Park Studios in Morecambe, run by TV and film stuntman Martin Shenton.

Martin said: “It was a bit of a shock when I found out about Frazer, it was devastating.

“He was a lovely lad, a nice chap who would help anyone.

“He would volunteer with trampoline coaching and help out with our live action maze paintball game.

“He would also help out at parties. He loved to tinker with things, he fixed a couple of our generators and could turn his hand to almost anything.

“I can’t see how what happened did happen. It’s a terrible thing.

“We held a minute’s silence at the studio for him and we are in the process of preparing a tribute video using clips of stuff he did which will be put on the Regent Park Studio website.

“He will be sorely missed by a lot of people.”

Up to 50 bikers led the funeral procession for Frazer on Thursday due to his popularity within the biking community.

Tributes have been paid to Frazer on Facebook.

Capt. Robert Thomson Ex ACF said: “R.I.P. Frazer Livesey you were a good cadet and i am proud of all you achieved.

Megan Greenwood‎ said: “R.I.P Frazer Mate! I hope you have a massive send off! You’ll be missed!!”
