Police are appealing for witnesses after a man died in a crash in Queensferry today. At 4.04pm, police received a report of an incident on the B5129 roundabout near Asda, beneath the A494, involving a heavy goods vehicle and a black motorcycle.

The emergency services attended, however, despite their best efforts, the driver of the motorcycle was sadly pronounced dead at the scene. His next of kin and the coroner have been informed.

Sergeant Alun Jones from the North Wales Police Roads Crime Unit is appealing for witnesses.

He said: “Sadly this is being investigated as a fatal road traffic collision. Our thoughts are with the man’s family at this very difficult time. We are urging anybody who may have witnessed the collision, or anybody who may have been travelling or walking along this roundabout in the vicinity of Asda, or the A494, and who may have mobile or dash cam footage to contact us.

“The road remains closed to allow the Forensic Collision Investigation Unit to carry out their initial investigation and we’d like to thank everyone for their patience.”
