A grey Audi RS3, dark blue Audi R8, black Suzuki GSXR motorbike and blue Suzuki GSXR motorcycle are believed to have collided near the Handforth Dean shopping centre roundabout.

Mr Rashid, the rider of the black Suzuki, suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Janaza Announcement - a bereavement notification service on social media wesbite, Facebook - named Mr Rashid as the victim of the crash.

The 34-year-old was a teacher at the Islamic Tarbiyya Centre, in Manningham, according to Janaza Announcement.

Hundreds responded with sadness to the death of Mr Rashid and offered their prayers for him.

A parent of a child at the Islamic Tarbiyya Centre, who was taught by Mr Rashid last year, described him as a wonderful teacher.

The parent, who wished to remain anonymous, added: "He was very patient, calm and motivating.

"He really ensured my son felt comfortable and would call him a champion.

"He made him feel confident and made him believe in himself.

"He would play football with the kids at school and would share his sweets.

"He was a very humble person and my son will always remember him as one of his most favourite teachers."

Another parent whose children were taught by Mr Rashid said they saw him on Tuesday and couldn't believe he had died.

They added: "He will always live in his students' hearts."
