Biker Dies After A31 Crash

A motorcyclist has died in hospital after a crash on the A31 at Ferndown.

It happened at around 7.15am yesterday morning (Tuesday 20th March) at the junction with Uddens Drive when a silver Honda motorbike collided with a silver Peugeot 206.

The biker, a 54-year-old man from Bere Regis, was resuscitated by police officers at the scene. He was taken to Poole hospital where he later died.

The 22-year-old car driver from Wimborne suffered shock.
