Officers are appealing for witnesses following a collision in Barnsley in which a motorbike rider died. 

At around 7.30pm on Sunday evening (21 October), a 26-year-old man riding a red Multistrada Ducati was travelling along the A633 Valley Way, towards Wombwell, when he has overtaken two vehicles, a silver Peugeot and a white Vauxhall Corsa. 

It is then reported that the rider of the bike, Anthony Stirling (pictured), appeared to lose control, before leaving the carriageway. He was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

His family have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers. 

The collision happened outside of Waterside Park. 

A 35-year-old man driving the Peugeot was arrested at the scene and has since been released under investigation.  

Officers want to speak to anyone who saw what happened, who saw the motorbike and the manner of riding prior to the collision, or who has dashcam footage of the incident.

If you can help, please call 101 quoting incident number 824 of 21 October 2018.
