A WOMAN has been charged in connection with a traffic incident which resulted in the death of Plymouth father-of-three Paul Henderson. Devon and Cornwall Police yesterday announced that a 57-year-old Plymouth woman has been charged with ‘causing death by careless / inconsiderate driving’ following the fatal road traffic collision on January 30 this year. The woman has been bailed to attend Plymouth Magistrates’ Court on June 6. Mr Henderson, a Plymouth motorcyclist, died after a collision involving his blue Triumph Tiger motorcycle and three other vehicles. The incident happened on the St Budeaux slip-road on the A38 Parkway. Following his death his devastated family members and friends described him as a “gentle giant”. The 45-year-old left behind his wife, Jackie, his sons Robert and Andrew, his daughter, Sarah, his parents, Carol and Gordon, as well as his brother and sister, David and Julie. He also left his two grandchildren, Harvey and Azura and his future grandchild who is due in the summer. In a heart-felt tribute the family said: “Paul was nothing but a saint, a gentle giant who was not just a husband, father, son, brother or grandson, but the whole foundation of his family. “Words cannot describe how much he is going to be missed by everyone.”
