A boy has died in a crash between a car and a scooter in Northumberland.

It happened on North Road in Berwick at about 22:00 GMT. The 16-year-old rider of the scooter was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

A man aged 43 has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless or inconsiderate driving and has been released on police bail.

Officers are trying to find out what happened and have appealed for witnesses.

Sgt Jason Ryder said: "We believe the boy was with another male on a scooter shortly before the collision and they had visited McDonald's in Berwick.

"We're keen to hear from anyone who saw them, whether in McDonald's or the surrounding area."
