A Seaford motorcyclist has died in hospital after a collision in Berwick on Sunday (March 19), Sussex Police say.

Police say the rider – a 23-year-old man from Seaford – sustained multiple injuries after he collided with a Land Rover Defender at around 12.15pm in Station Road near the entrance to Arlington Reservoir.

He was taken by ambulance to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton, where he passed away early on Thursday afternoon. (March 23).

Police say the Land Rover, which was towing a horsebox, was driven by a 58-year-old man from Berwick, who sustained minor injuries that did not require hospital treatment.

Police are continuing to seek witnesses to the crash or anyone who saw either of the two vehicles involved shortly before the collision.

In particular, officers are keen to speak to the occupants of a dark-coloured people carrier which was seen to pass over the level crossing at Berwick railway station moments before the motorcyclist.

Anyone with information is asked to email collision.appeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk, to report details online at https://sussex.police.uk/contact-us/response-to-appeal/ or to phone 101, quoting Operation Chesterfield.
