A family business which was destroyed by fire is set to re-open later this month.

Wilson’s Motorcyles, based in Willington Road, Kirton, was engulfed by flames in November.

But after 40 years of trading, Richard Wilson - who runs the business with his son Ben, a British Superstock rider - refused to be beaten.

And on January 15 they will resume trading at 3.15pm (15:15).

Wilson’s race number is, of course, 15.
