A motorcyclist has died after a serious road traffic collision.

The rider, a 27-year-old man, was travelling along the A60 when his motorcycle collided with a van at around 3.15pm on Monday (7 June 2021).

He sustained serious injuries and – despite the best efforts of medics – was pronounced dead at the scene.

The road remained closed until around 5am this morning (Tuesday 8 June 2021) whilst investigation work was carried out at the scene.

Police Sergeant Mark Baker of Nottinghamshire Police's Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: “This is a tragic incident and – as with all road traffic collisions where people are killed or seriously injured – we are working hard to understand exactly what happened.

"This was a tragic loss of a life and our thoughts are with his family.

"If you witnessed this incident or saw a motorcycle travelling along the road immediately before the collision please contact 101 quoting incident 457 of 8 June 2021. Also please make contact if you have dash cam or head cam footage. ”
