He continued: "The other motorcyclist, a 25-year-old man, was arrested on suspicion of driving whilst unfit through drugs. He is currently in police custody.

"A road closure was put in place following the incident but this has since been removed."

One witness, who did not want to be named, said the incident - which they said took place near a bike shop - caused a 'major detour due to a police road closure'.

They added that drivers were left confused because "nobody was there to tell anybody (what happened), so loads of us made a huge detour with no answer."
