TRIBUTES were paid last night to a North Wales college tutor killed while out on a motorcycle training exercise.

Vivien Gardiner, 29, was taking part in a training course with Neil's Motorcycles of Llay, Wrexham on Tuesday.

She is believed to have lost control of her 500 cc Kawasaki, near Pontblyddyn,on the A541 Wrexham to Mold road.

She was accompanied by a tutor and another student. Paramedics treated her at the scene but she was pronounced dead on arrival at Wrexham Maelor Hospital.

Ms Gardiner, who lived with her partner in a flat at Overton Way,Acton,Wrexham, worked at Yale College,in Wrexham,in an educational support post.

The principal of Yale College, Paul Croke, said last night: ``Viv Gardiner was a member of the learning support team at Yale College for the last two years, a role which she filled to great effect and one she pursued with much enthusiasm.

``She was very popular with colleagues and students alike and her untimely death, in such tragic circumstances,has come as a great shock to us all.

``Our deepest sympathy is extended to members of her family and to her many friends.''
