POLICE are appealing for information after a motorcyclist died in a collision in the Cotswolds.

The incident happened on the A433 near to the junction with the A429 at Kemble at around midday yesterday (August 21).

A silver Audi TT driven by a 64-year-old woman from the London area collided with a white Suzuki GSXR motorbike driven by a 30-year-old man from Cirencester.

Sadly the motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene. The coroner and the victim’s next of kin have been informed. The driver and passenger of the Audi suffered facial injuries not believed to be life threatening or changing and were taken to Cirencester Hospital for treatment before being transferred to Cheltenham Hospital. They were released from hospital later that day.

The road was closed for around 4 hours whilst officers carried out their investigations into the crash.

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident is asked to contact Gloucestershire Police on 101 quoting incident number 163 of August 21.
