37-year-old motorcyclist died at the scene

Roads and Transport Policing officers are appealing for witnesses to a fatal collision in Battersea on Tuesday 9 May. Police were called at around 2.15pm to reports of a collision involving a motorcycle in Vicarage Crescent, near the junction with Lombard Road.

The rider, a DJ who was known locally as C J Hammer, was pronounced dead at the scene.
