We are appealing for witnesses after a man died following a collision on the A5 in Leighton Buzzard on Friday (15 June).

Just before 7pm, a collision occurred just past Eastern Way between a silver Volkswagen Golf, travelling south, and a black Suzuki motorbike.

Emergency services attended but one man, the rider of the motorbike, was pronounced dead at the scene. Next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specially trained officers. 

Road closures were in place while officers dealt with the incident.

If you were travelling along the A5 at the time of the incident, please get in touch.”
