The Police say the details about the incident are unclear, however it appears that the rider of the motorcycle lost control and collided with a wall. The man sustained serious serious head, neck and chest injuries and was rushed to KEMH via ambulance; where he later died.

Police are appealing for any witnesses or anyone with any information to contact PC Richard Geraghty on 295-0011.
