Police Constable Tracey Downer, of the Roads Policing Team, said: "First and foremost, our thoughts are with the family of the man who has very sadly died in this collision.

"We are conducting a thorough investigation to establish the full circumstances of the incident and I would urge any witnesses to please contact us.

"I would also like to hear from anyone who may have captured anything relevant on dashcam footage."
