Detectives say the 20-year-old man who was riding a grey Yamaha bike lost control on Langsett Road North, near to Bedford Road in the Outbridge area of the city, shortly before 8am.

No other vehicles were involved, and the rider died at the scene.

Langsett Road North currently remains closed in both directions between Cockshut Lane and Green Lane.

More than 4000 households across the city have responded so far.

Now census staff will be knocking on doors to get those households randomly-selected for the test, who have not completed it yet, to fill in their questionnaires.

The test is a practice run for the 2021 census.
