FUNERAL arrangements have been confirmed for an officer who died in a crash last month.

PC James Dixon, 39, died after his motorbike collided with a car on A4, Bath Road on December 5.

It is understood that his wife Sam is expecting the couple's first child.

She said: "Words cannot describe the loss that we all feel right now. He not only was a great guy but he was one of the proudest police officers around.

"We will never be able to fill the hole that he leaves behind, but he will forever be in our hearts and memories for ever and always. Xxxxx”

His funeral will be held at Saint James the Less Church in Pangbourne on January 18.

Gladys Goodwin, 91, also died in the crash and more than £7,000 has been raised for both families.

The driver of the vehicle, a woman, was rushed to hospital for treatment.

Guests are invited to make a donation to PC Dixon's chosen charities, Thames Valley Air Ambulance Trust and Flint House.
