By in Emergency Services

A MOTORCYCLIST has died nearly three weeks after an accident at Slape Moor Bridge, near Wiveliscombe, and police are appealing for witnesses.

The incident happened at 1.37pm on March 30 on the B3227.

The male motorcyclist was airlifted to Southmead Hospital, Bristol, with serious injuries and died last Thursday evening, April 13.

Police say a Toyota Auris was travelling towards Wiveliscombe when it stopped to turn right into Manor Grange, where an Audi A4 estate was waiting to pull out of the junction.

A BMW motorcycle being ridden away from Wiveliscombe approached the junction and was in collision with the Toyota and then collided with the Audi.

Anyone who was in the area at the time who may be able to help is asked to call Avon and Somerset collision investigation unit on 101, quoting collision reference CI/58/17.
