Police investigating a collision in which a 49-year-old man died in Barnsley are continuing to appeal for witnesses.

Officers are particularly keen to trace a white van, possibly a Mercedes Sprinter, that was in the area at the time of the collision on Wednesday 15 November last year.  

At around 4.25pm, a black Land Rover Freelander and a black and grey Moto Guzzi motorbike were involved in a collision on the A61 Sheffield Road, close to the junction with Knowle Road.

Clive Burdett, 49, from Doncaster, who was riding the motorbike, was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

PC Richard Thorley, investigating, said: “Almost four months on from the collision we remain keen to speak to witnesses, and in particular anyone who saw a white van in the area.

“The van was seen at the junction of Upper Sheffield Road and Knowle Road, having turned left from Upper Sheffield Road into Knowle Road, as the Landrover began to pull out of the junction.

“We think the driver of the van could have information that could assist with our enquiries. If you are the driver of the van, or if you saw the van, please get in touch with us.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 or Crime quoting incident number 706 of 15 November 2017.
