Police are appealing for the driver of a white van to come forward following a fatal collision on the A47 in Wisbech in September.

The crash happened around 11.19am on September 23 where a white Yamaha motorbike, travelling towards Wisbech at crossroads near Broadend Road East, and a grey BMW 520, travelling in the opposite direction, collided.

The rider of the motorbike, a man in his 30s from the local area, died at the scene.

Officers are still keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision or the manner of driving of any of the vehicles prior to it.

In particular, they would like to hear from the occupants of a white Vauxhall Movano-type van who stopped at the scene, but drove off before emergency services arrived. A police spokesman said: “Anyone with information should contact the PC Matt Gouldsmith from the SCIT on 101.”
