Death in second A66 accident

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.
