Baz Carmon, a dad-of-three from Belford, died in a head-on collision at Newton on the Moor on Saturday, April 8, 2017.

Police said that a Ford Transit van was travelling south on the northbound carriageway and a Subaru Impreza, driven by 30-year-old Baz, was travelling north on the northbound carriageway when the accident occurred.

The memorial, organised by Sam Robinson, will be held on Saturday.

Cars are being asked to meet at the BP garage in Alnwick at 5pm for a drive to Blyth beach at 5.30pm. The convoy will leave Blyth, join the A1 and head north, past the site of the accident.
