Motorcycle taken from crash death scene in Stourport

A motorcycle was taken from the scene of a fatal crash in Worcestershire, police said.

Emergency services were called to Bewdley Road, Stourport-on-Severn, on Wednesday evening where a motorcyclist died at the scene.

West Mercia police said the red and black motorbike had been removed before they arrived and had not been found.

A spokesman said a lot of people had been at the scene and urged anyone who saw it being taken to get in touch.

Ambulance staff said bystanders had carried out CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) on the man who was in cardiac arrest.

'Lost control'

The accident took place at 18:38 BST by the Brinton Arms pub.

The motorcyclist, a man in his 20s from Stourport, lost control on the bend and hit the kerb, police said.

PC Gary Otun said the rider's helmet had also been taken but later found nearby.

"Within minutes of this incident there were a lot of people on the scene, including people who had been inside the pub.

"I would urge them to come forward if they saw the bike being removed or anything else that could help our inquiries," he said.
