Motorcyclist from Luton dies in Wiltshire collision


A motorcyclist who died after a collision on a remote country road is from Luton, we can confirm.

The victim, a 29-year-old man, was found by a member of the public at 9am on Thursday near Chilmark, South Wilshire.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police, who believe that the incident did not involved any other vehicles, recovered the victim’s Yamaha near a tree on a bend in the road.

The incident occurred sometime between 2am and 8.45am on Thursday morning.

It is believed the rider was travelling towards Chilmark.

The road was closed for six hours while police carried out investigations.

An inquest into the death has not yet been opened by Wiltshire and Swindon coroner’s service, though one is expected to begin later this week.
