A motorcyclist has sadly died following a collision on the A419 last night.

At approximately 6.10pm on 5 November, a Kia Sorento was travelling northbound on the A419.

A Yamaha motorcycle was also being ridden in the same direction when it collided with the Kia just north of the A361 junction.

The motorcyclist – a man aged in his 50s from Swindon – sadly died at the scene. Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time. They are being supported by a specially trained family liaison officer.
