The spokeswoman added: “Officers investigating the accident are still keen to hear from anyone who may have seen what happened.

“They particularly want to trace the driver of an orange Vauxhall Corsa which was in the area at the time and whose occupants could be potential witnesses to what happened.

“We would also like to speak to anyone else who was in the area and saw either the Focus or the motorcycle before the accident.”

The crash happened at about 5.10pm on Saturday February 21.

Anyone who was in the area around that time is asked to contact Pc Paul Fletcher of the roads policing unit on 01473 613500.
