A motorcyclist has died after a serious crash on the Londonbound A2 this morning (Tuesday).

Traffic was queuing for seven miles from near the Kidbrooke Interchange after a motorcycle was involved in a smash during the rush hour.

The male rider, aged 47, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The road has since reopened, following investigation works which lasted most for most of the day.

Met Police officers are now appealing for witnesses to the fatal crash.

A spokesperson from Scotland Yard said: “Roads and Transport Policing officers are appealing for witnesses following a fatal collision on the A2 between Westhorne Avenue and Kidbrooke Park Road, Greenwich.

“Police and the London Ambulance Service were called at just after 7am on Tuesday, March 21 to a moped in collision with a lorry and then a coach.

“The male rider, aged 47, was pronounced dead at the scene.

“Whilst officers believe they know who the deceased is they await formal identification.

“The drivers of the lorry and the coach stopped at the scene; there have been no arrests.”

Another two people were checked by paramedics at the scene.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
