A second collision on the A66 has claimed the life of a motorbike rider.
At 2.15pm yesterday, a rider on an MV Augusta motorbike was killed after being in a crash with a Volkswagon Tiguan on the A684 at Langston Fell, a few miles east of Sedbergh.
The car driver, aged 55, received light injuries and he was treated at the scene by an ambulance.
A motorcyclist and a car driver were also killed in a separate collision an hour before.
Investigations have begun into both incidents and anyone with information is asked to call Cumbria Police on 101.
