The incident involving a blue Jeep and a Black Kawasaki occurred at the junction with Rowhook Road.

Police said officers were tasked with making the motorcyclist’s next of kin aware before being able to confirm he sustained fatal injuries at the scene. He was a 39-year-old man from Surrey.

The victim is believed to have been travelling southbound with at least one other motorcycle – a blue Yamaha – when the collision occurred.
