A motorcyclist sadly died in a collision on the A361 in Somerset yesterday (Sunday 4 February).

Emergency services were called shortly after 4.35pm following a reported collision between a van and a motorbike in West Lyng, near the junction of New Road.

Sadly, a woman in her 20s was pronounced deceased. Her next of kin were notified last night of the tragic events and will be supported by a specially-trained officer.
