M25 Essex: Motorcyclist dies after crash with car being chased by police

The crash happened on the M25 near the Dartford Crossing

A motorcyclist has died following a collision with a car that was being chased by police on the M25 near Lakeside.

Essex Police were called to junction 30, after a car and motorcycle collided at around 11.40pm last night (Sunday, 14 April).

Despite the best efforts of emergency services, the motorcyclist died at the scene.

Two men, both aged 18 and from Essex, were arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. They both remain in custody for questioning.

The car was involved in a pursuit involving Kent Police prior to the crash. The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) is independently investigating the circumstances surrounding the police pursuit, following a mandatory referral by Kent Police to the IOPC.

Part of the roundabout was closed for several hours while accident investigation work was carried out.

The road was fully reopened by around 10.30am this morning (Monday, 15 April).

Anyone with dashcam footage from the incident or information, is asked to contact Essex Police, quoting incident number 1331 of Saturday 14 April.

Alternatively you can call police on 101 and in an emergency, call 999.

To make an anonymous report, you can contact independent charity Crimestoppers, by visiting their website or by calling 0800 555 111.
