Crews arrived to find a motorcycle and lorry that had been in collision. The man riding the motorcycle had suffered serious injuries and was in cardiac arrest.
“Advanced life support was carried out by medics, with the support of an off duty fireman and retired police officer, but unfortunately despite their best efforts, sadly nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead at the scene.
“The driver of the lorry, a man, was assessed and discharged at scene.”
One man has died in a series crash on the M40 between J16 and J15, which happened at around midnight yesterday.

The collision is affecting both directions of traffic and has caused the motorway to close. However, there is a diversion in operation, which takes Southbound traffic North on the M42 to J6.
Warwickshire Police are appealing for any witnesses.
East Midlands Trains’ customers are amongst the most satisfied, according to new figures released today by Transport Focus.Read the full story ›
