The 20-year-old from Ipswich crashed into railings and glass directly outside the campus building at around 2.50am on Saturday.

Attempts were made to resuscitate Mr Lungley, but he died at Ipswich Hospital a short while after the crash.

Police had been made aware of a motorbike riding through the town centre at high speed fifteen minutes before the crash.

The matter will be passed to the Independent Police Complaints Commission given the police presence in the area at the time of the incident, as is usual procedure in such circumstances.

Police would like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the bike travelling through the town or who witnessed the actual collision.

Calls should be made to the Serious Collision Investigation Team at Suffolk Police on 101, quoting CAD 53 of 26/7/14.
