Hundreds of bikers join funeral procession after man dies 

Allan Nicholson died after his motorbike collided with a car on the East Kilbride Expressway.

More than 500 bikers paid their respects to a man who died in a collision with an alleged drink-driver earlier this month.

The bikers joined a funeral procession for miles as Allan Nicholson was carried to his final resting place.

Around 350 bikers initially gathered at Glasgow Western Retail Park off the A82 and followed the hearse of the 24-year-old along the M8, the Erskine Bridge and finally Clydebank Dalnottar Crematorium. 

An extra 150 riders joined the fleet of bikes en route to the crematorium.
