A 27-year-old motorcyclist who died following a collision with a van has been named.

Nathan Ashworth was fatally injured at around 3.15pm whilst he was travelling along the A60 on Monday (7 June 2021).

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

Nathan’s family are being supported by specialist officers and have asked for privacy at this difficult time.

The road remained closed until around 5am on 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."
