Officers investigating the collision have conducted a number of enquiries and are now turning to the public for help.

A police spokeswoman said: ‘Were you on the road at time and perhaps you witnessed the moments before the collision? Do you have any dash-cam footage of the incident?

‘We are also keen to hear from anyone who saw a Burgundy VW Passat with a roof rack that may have been driving erratically before the collision.

‘Anyone with information is asked to phone 101, and quote the reference number 44200196122. Alternatively, you can phone Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.’
