Tributes have been paid to the motorcyclist killed in last week’s accident on Glasgow Road in Camelon.

George Anderson (49) died at the scene last Wednesday morning when his Yamaha motorbike collided with a bin lorry travelling in the opposite direction on the stretch of road near the Mariner Centre.

Emergency services, including the air ambulance, rushed to the scene around 7.25am.

Mr Anderson, from Shieldhill, worked for Falkirk Council and David Pugh, his supervisor, said: “George was a popular employee with his colleagues and will be sadly missed by everyone who knew him. Our deepest sympathy goes out to everyone affected by this tragedy.”
