Mr Broderick, 29, was involved in a collision with a child on Abbey Lane shortly before 8pm on July 20.

He was riding a black Yamaha YZF 125 at the time of the crash, which claimed his life.

He is thought to have lost control of the bike after colliding with the boy, before hitting a tree.

Although the child suffered injuries, they are not believed to be life-threatening or life-changing.

An investigation onto the collision is continuing, and also into the anti-social behaviour which occurred earlier this week.

In a statement, Leicestershire Police said: “Reports were received of a number of motorcycles being driven dangerously in the area while the event was being held. Officers attended the scene. No injuries were reported and inquiries remain ongoing into the report.

“Local officers are monitoring the Abbey Lane area to help Mr Broderick’s family and friends continue to peacefully pay their respects at the scene of the collision and remember their loved one,” they added. 

“We continue to support the family and friends of Mr Broderick during this difficult time.

“Please continue to report any incidents in the area to us so that the appropriate police action can be taken. Thank you for your ongoing support and co-operation.”

Anyone with information about the incident, or anti-social behaviour, is asked to contact Leicestershire Police on 101.
