The crash, involving a red Volvo XC40 and a black Royal Enfield motorcycle, claimed the life of the biker, a man in his 30s.

The first car is a metallic red Mercedes A-Class hatchback seen travelling along Peatling Road and Ashby Road, in the direction of Peatling Parva, at around 9am. The second car was a dark-coloured Volkswagen Tiguan that was travelling in the same direction.
Officers believe that the drivers and occupants of both cars may have information about the circumstances surrounding the crash as they were in the area moments before it happened. Police have directly appealed for them to come forward.
Detective Sergeant Jon Putnam, from Leicestershire Police’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Our investigation is continuing and from what we know so far, I believe the occupants of both these cars may have seen what happened – but they have not yet spoken to police. I’m appealing for those people to get in touch as I believe they are key witnesses who could assist us with further enquiries. If you were in one of those vehicles, then please contact us.”
Anyone with information about the collision should call police on 101, quoting reference 22*324244. Alternatively, report information online.
