A 36-year-old motorcyclist has died in a crash on the A417 yesterday morning shortly after 9.30am.

It happened near Faringdon, on the Lechlade bound side of the road.

It is thought the man’s black Honda motorcycle collided with a white Isuzu truck as the truck slowed to turn right into a farm, police said.

The motorcyclist, from Hampshire, was thrown into a hedge and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police were called to the incident at 9.42am and have appealed for witnesses to call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
