The daughter of a learner motorcyclist who died in a smash during his first lesson is raising money in his memory for the medics who came to his aid.
Darren Jobling, 50, was thrown from his bike and crashed into a tree on Front Street West in Bedlington, Northumberland in July, 2019.
The Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS) and North East Ambulance Service (NEAS) attended the scene and found that Mr Jobling had sustained severe chest injuries.
He was taken to the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle by a NEAS road crew, accompanied by the critical care team from GNAAS.
His daughter Danielle Jobling, 25, said: “GNAAS were there to assist straight away. They placed my dad in a coma and ensured he was comfortable.”
Sadly, Mr Jobling, from Stakeford, Northumberland died a few hours later as a result of his injuries.

Sketches by Mrs A E MacLeod
I grew up in the knowledge that the monks fled from Lindisfarne and the Vikings first and then again from the Normans.
The date Saturday the 12th Dec 1069 is mentioned.
I am attempting to reproduce the page but it is only a hand held.
Can anyone shed some light on the work going on at the old elliots garage site? Someone told me that there is going to be a old folks home built there, then someone else told me that the planning permission for that fell through.
I have searched the council websites for info but they havent come up with much as yet.
If it is going to be a residential home, which company is it for? I can find the name of the building contractors but not the actual company who they are building it for ( if they are building anything at all!)
Any info would be very much appriciated.
Do you think we could recreate Bedlington Front Street from years ago by using old pics ?
I think it would be worth doing.
Malcolm , i reckon it would be good for your project. What do you think.
here's two pics , we could add on to these and re-create the street if we could get enough pics from that time
