Press release   •   May 24, 2019 22:52 BST

We’re continuing to appeal for witnesses after a motorcyclist died in a collision on the A27 Southampton Road at Titchfield.

It took place near the Argos store shortly before 6pm on Friday 24 May.

The Honda motorcycle was travelling on the eastbound carriageway when it went into the opposite carriageway and was in collision with a car.

Officers attended the scene and the motorcyclist, a 40-year-old man from Fareham, was pronounced dead at the scene.

His next-of-kin have been informed.

An investigation is now underway to establish the exact circumstances of what took place.

Sergeant Richard Grant said: “We are keen to hear from anyone who saw what happened or the circumstances leading up to it.

“In particular, we are keen to hear from a driver of a dark-coloured sports car that was seen driving in the same direction as the motorbike around the time of the collision.

“This person may hold vital information that could help our investigation.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101, quoting Operation Shetland.
