A WITNESS appeal has been launched after a serious collision involving a car and a bike on the A343.

A Land Rover and a red Yahama motorbike collided at around 7.10pm last night at the road’s junction with Salisbury Lane, near Middle Wallop.

Police officers attended and an investigation, in its early stages, is underway.

Police would like to hear from anyone who was driving on the A343, from Andover and towards Salisbury, at around this time and remembers seeing a motorbike in front or behind their vehicle.

Officers would also like to hear from anyone who was driving in the area at the time and has a dash cam.

Anyone with information should call 101, quoting reference number 769 of yesterday's date.
