We are appealing for witnesses after a motorcyclist died following a collision yesterday evening.
The collision happened shortly after 11.20pm on 26 August when a grey Yamaha motorbike left Wilmot Road and collided with a house.
The rider, a 21-year-old man, was taken to hospital with serious injuries where he sadly later died.
His family have been made aware and are being supported by specialist officers, our thoughts are with them at this tragic time.
Detectives are investigating the circumstances around the collision and are keen to hear from anyone who was in Heathcote Road, Stanhope Road and Alexandra Road around the time it occurred.
Anyone with dash cam or CCTV footage which may be useful to officers should ensure it is securely downloaded to a separate device, ready for them to view.
Please quote reference number 22*498412 when contacting us.
You can also anonymously contact the independent charity Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111, or by visiting the Crimestoppers website.
