A family has paid tribute to a Chelmsford mother who died following a motorcycle crash near Braintree.

Kellie Dowles, 41, was riding pillion on a grey BMW motorbike on Bardfield Road, near Bardfield Saling, when it collided with a blue Ford Fiesta at around 4pm on Sunday, April 30.

Mrs Dowles was airlifted to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, but died later from injuries suffered.

A statement through Essex Police read: “Kellie was a dearly loved wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend to everyone that knew her.

“Kellie worked as a florist and also ran a café with her husband.

“Alongside her floristry Kellie enjoyed spending time and travelling with her family. Kellie was also an animal lover with a particular fondness towards dogs.

“All the family members and friends greatly miss Kellie very much.”

The rider of the motorbike, a man in his 30s, was taken to hospital with serious injuries but has since been discharged and is recovering at home.
