THE rider of a motorcycle has died after colliding with a parked car.

London Ambulance Service and an Air Ambulance attended the crash in Tiverton Drive, New Eltham at 2.40pm on Monday, but the 26-year-old was declared dead at the scene.

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said: "It appears that the motorcycle may have lost control and collided with the parked vehicles. No one else was injured in the collision."

Police want the driver of a silver T-reg car, possibly a VW golf, who was in the vicinity at the time to contact police as they may be a witness. There is no suggestion the driver was involved in the incident.

A post-mortem was due to be held yesterday at Greenwich Mortuary.

Detective Sergeant Gordon Wallace, from the MPS Traffic Collision Investigation Unit

said: "We would like to hear from anyone who may have seen this collision.

"It would have been very loud and quite a few local people have already come forward to say they heard the incident.

"It is very sad that this young man lost his life in this way, but crucial that we establish the circumstances."

Contact the Collision Investigation Unit at Catford on 020 8285 1574.
