INQUESTS have been opened into the death of a motorcyclist and his passenger who died in a crash on the A465 earlier this month.

Mariusz Robert Siczek, who was 45, and Lukasz Edward Kasinski, 34, were both killed when the motorcycle they were riding was in collision with a tractor near Locks Garage at Allensmore on the evening of September 1.

An off-duty GP who stopped at the scene was joined by paramedics and police, but both men were sadly confirmed dead on scene.

The road was closed for several hours while a crash scene investigation was carried out.

Today's hearing was adjourned to allow a full inquest hearing to be held at a later date.
