Road closures are in now place and drivers are being advised to avoid the area.

Gwyn Morris, an eye-witness who passed by the incident on his way back from shopping, said: “I left the station and there was nothing. Went to Coop for about 10 minutes and then police were all there.

“Could see a bike all mangled and a casualty, I think a male, but didn’t want to intrude.

“The air ambulance was brilliant though. It must’ve been a really quick response.”

Witnesses to the incident are asked to call 101 and use ref 6034/18june.
