The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene

A motorcyclist has died after crashing his bike in Wrotham Heath on Sunday morning.

The 53-year-old from Northfleet came off his metallic-coloured Kawasaki ZX 600 just before 9am on the Nepicar Roundabout, which connects the A20 with junction 2A of the M26.

Police confirmed the motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene.

His next of kin have been informed.

Officers, who closed the roundabout for around four hours, do not believe any other vehicles were involved in the crash and are now appealing for any witnesses to come forward.

A Kent Police spokesperson made this appeal: “Officers from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit would like to hear from anyone who saw what happened or who witnessed the vehicle in the moments before or afterwards.

“Please call the appeal line on 01622 798538 quoting reference DW-195.”
