Police have revealed the rider of a motorbike who died after a crash on the A14 last night was a 17-year-old boy from Norfolk.

Police were called shortly before 9pm on Sunday to reports of a collision between a car and a motorbike on the westbound carriageway of the A14, between junctions 53 and 52, just after Whitehouse.

Police and emergency services attended the scene but the motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene.

The road was closed between junctions 52 and 55 for several hours while the police carried out their investigations, with a diversion put in place.

Police have now appealed for any witnesses to the incident to come forward and contact the Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101 quoting CAD 306 of 4/1/15 on 101.
