Police are appealing for witnesses after a motorcyclist was involved in a fatal crash in Batley this morning (Tuesday).

Shortly after midnight, officers were called to the junction of Bradford Road and Mount Street, Batley, following a report of a collision involving a Honda motorbike and grey BMW 530.

The motorcyclist, a man in his 20s, was treated by paramedics at the scene but was pronounced deceased a short time later.

Sergeant Ann Drury, of West Yorkshire Police’s Major Collision Enquiry Team, said: “We are keen to hear from anyone who has either witnessed the collision itself or the manner of driving of either vehicle prior to the collision.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the Major Collision Enquiry Team on 101.
