A motorcyclist has died of injuries after colliding with a deer in London last night.
Police say the 34-year old man was riding on Western Road, just south of Platt’s Lane when a deer crossed into his path. The rider was pronounced dead at the scene. The deer was severely injured and was dispatched by police.
The name of the rider will not be released until next of kin are notified.
All motorists are reminded that animals are particularly active this time of year and extra caution needs to be taken especially during the dawn and dusk hours.
