We are appealing for witnesses after a man died following a collision in Larbreck.

Police were called at around 5:50pm on Thursday (1st February) following reports of a serious collision on the A586, Garstang Road near to the ‘Windy Harbour’ crossroads.

The collision involved three vehicles: a Land Rover Defender towing a twin-axle trailer, a Honda NC 750 motorcycle and an Isuzu Grafter.

The rider of the Honda, a man in his 30s from Thornton, was taken to Royal Preston Hospital where sadly, he later died of his injuries.

A 37-year-old man from Preston and a 45-year-old man from Blackpool have been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

The road was closed for six hours while emergency services attended the scene.
