Tributes To Firefighter

Tributes have been paid to a firefighter and former Olympic bobsleigher, killed in a motorbike crash in Hertfordshire.

Rob Pope, 44, (right) died when the motorbike he was riding was involved in a crash with a silver Ford Galaxy and a Silver Ford Focus on the southbound A1M near the Hatfield Tunnel.

The crash happened just before 8.40am on Friday 22 March 2013.

The London Fire Fighter represented Great Britain as a member of the Olympic Bobsleigh Team at the Winter Olympics in 1994. He played for Finchley Golf Club and was a member of the Shaftesbury Harriers.
 
He had recently received a long service medal from the brigade.
 
His wife Nicky said: "Rob was a wonderful husband and father to our six-year-old son.

"We shared many happy years together including some memorable holidays including going across the West of America on a Harley Davidson motorcycle which we thoroughly enjoyed.

"Rob was a joker and always saw the amusing side to life. He doted on our little boy and we will never forget him."
