We’re appealing for witnesses following a fatal collision the A31 between Winchester and Alresford this morning.

Officers were called at 8.42am to reports of a collision on the A31 eastbound, at the junction with Rodfield Lane.

The collision involved a Land Rover Discovery and a motorbike.

The motorcyclist, a man in his 50’s, was pronounced dead at the scene.

His next of kin have been notified and are being supported by specialist officers.
