A SEVEN-year-old girl has died following a crash in Collingbourne Ducis yesterday (Tuesday July 13).

Police were called to the A338 Church Street shortly before 6.30pm following a collision involving a young cyclist and a heavy goods vehicle.

The girl was taken to Salisbury District Hospital but died a short time later.

A statement from Wiltshire Police said: "Her family are being supported by specially-trained officers and our thoughts are with them at this incredibly difficult time. We would ask that people respect their privacy.

"The driver of the HGV remained at the scene and no arrests have been made.

"A section of road was closed for around eight-and-a-half hours to allow collision investigation work to take place.

"We would ask anyone who witnessed the collision, or anyone who may have dash cam footage which could assist our enquiries, to call Wiltshire Police’s Collision Investigation Unit on 101, quoting log 225 of yesterday (13/07)."
