A man who died following a motorcycle accident in Brandon has been named as Andrew Snowie.

The 59-year-old, from Brandon, was on his motorbike when it left the road and collided with a fence on Green Road, close to the junction with Blackbird Avenue just after 5.15pm on Friday, March 3.

He was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge, in a critical condition, and he died from his injuries.

The road was closed following the collision while emergency services attended the scene, and it was reopened shortly after 8pm the same day.

It is believed that Mr Snowie was travelling from Brandon town centre towards Thetford.

Suffolk Constabulary has launched an appeal for witnesses.

Anyone who saw the collision, or who has any information to assist the enquiry, should contact Suffolk Police on 101, quoting CAD 299 of 3 March.
