One man was killed and two injured when a group of motorcyclists crashed in Lincolnshire, police have confirmed.

Nine bikers were on the A46 Thorpe on the Hill flyover on Monday morning and were overtaking a tractor when the crash happened.

A 53-year-old died at the scene and two others, aged 54 and 36, were airlifted to hospital with serious injuries. All three were from Leicestershire.

The road was closed until around 16:30 BST causing long tailbacks.
