Freelance photographer Eddie Mitchell captured these poignant images which show dozens of cyclists accompanying Mr Lock and his family, in an emotional send-off.

Great-grandfather Mr Lock, 79, was killed during an alleged road-rage attack on July 16, along the A24 through Findon.

Matthew Daley, 34, of St Elmo Road, Worthing, has been charged with murder and possession of a bladed article in connection with Don’s death.
