A stretch of the road on the Norfolk and Cambridgeshire border was closed after the collision yesterday (Saturday, September 23), in which police have now revealed a motorcycle rider in his 30s - who is from the local area - died at the scene.

At approximately 11.19am, a white Ford Transit panel van and a white Yamaha motorbike were heading towards Wisbech when, close to a staggered crossroads near Broadend Road East, the motorbike was in collision with a grey BMW 520 travelling in the opposite direction.
