A convoy of Subarus drove through Belford on Sunday to mark the anniversary of the death of a father-of-three who was killed on the A1.

Barry Carmon, known as Baz, who lived in the village, died in a crash at Newton on the Moor on April 8, last year.

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.

To mark the anniversary, Baz’s cousin, Robin Foulis, organised last weekend’s event.

Subaru drivers attended Belford Classic Car show, before going through the village in tribute to car-loving Baz.

Robin said: “It was a great turnout for Baz and it went really well.”

A week before, a similar tribute – organised by Baz’s friends from Alnwick – took place. A procession of cars travelled past the crash site before going through Belford and on to Berwick.
