TWO motorcyclists have died following a crash involving a motorbike and a tractor in Herefordshire yesterday.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called by the police to the A465 near Allensmore at 6.23pm last night.

Two ambulances and a paramedic officer attended, and an off-duty GP was also on scene prior to crews arriving.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When ambulance crews arrived on scene, they found two men who had come off a motorbike following a collision with a tractor.

“Sadly, both were confirmed dead on scene.”

The road was closed for several hours while a crash scene investigation was carried out. It has since reopened.
