Tributes have poured in for a “warm and friendly” teacher who died in a horror crash involving “several motorcyclists” on Sunday.

Ahmed Bafadhel, 28, has been formally identified by Buckinghamshire Coroner’s Court this morning – just days after he died on July 31 when he was involved in a crash on the A355 Amersham Road in Coleshill.

Mr Bafadhel, from Slough, was head of technology at Slough and Eton School, where hundreds of flowers and tributes have been left in his memory.

Executive headteacher Paul McAteer said: "His enthusiasm for teaching has always been magnificent. That shone through with everything that he did - the pupils loved him for it.

"He was always so willing to give up his time, whether to help them fix their bikes or with an engineering project.

"He was very proud of the school and his parents have every right to be very proud of him."

Rob Deeks, CEO at Slough-based charity Aik Saath - where Mr Bafadhel was vice chairman of trustees – also paid tribute to the “warm, friendly and enthusiastic” teacher.

He said: “He was incredibly motivated to help young people. He did it through his school work and he was doing exceptionally well as a teacher.

"If you had to sum him up it would be that he was always going the extra mile."

The keen motorcyclist was a member of Deen Riders, a Muslim motorbike organisation that works with charities around the world and a statement on their Facebook page said they were “extremely saddened” by the news of his death.

They said: “We have been inundated with an outpouring of grief following the death of our beloved brother, Ahmed Bafadhel. It is clear that all those who knew Ahmed have suffered a great loss.

"Our members have lost a fellow biker. His pupils have lost a devoted and caring teacher. His parents have lost a loving son."

An inquest into his death has been opened and a pre-inquest review will be held on November 9.
