A BRACKNELL motorcyclist has died after colliding with a tree in Oxford yesterday. 

The 26-year-old man was travelling south along the A4074 Oxford Road on a Suzuki motorcycle when he collided with another BMW motorbike at around 1.20pm.

The Suzuki then came off the road and crashed into a tree with the driver sustaining fatal injuries. His next of kin have been informed.

The other motorcyclist was uninjured.
