Police are particularly interested in hearing from people who were in the area at the time or may have picked up either of the vehicles on camera.

Detective Constable Naomi Hames from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: “I am appealing to anybody who was in the area of Howes Lane, Vendee Drive and Middleton Stoney Road at or around 9.40am on Monday and who may have seen a motorcycle on or leaving Vendee Drive to get in touch with police.

“I would also particularly like to speak to the drivers of two particular cars, who were not involved but may have witnessed some of the incident. These vehicles are a dark coloured estate, similar to an Audi A4 and a grey SUV, similar to a Toyota Rav 4. Both of these cars were travelling behind a white van at the time of the incident.
