The male rider died at the scene of the collision between junctions 36 and 35 westbound at around 2am this morning. The section of the road has been closed by police, who are carrying out investigation work. Any witnesses to the crash are urged to call them on 101.

Highways England confirmed a lorry was the other vehicle involved in the crash. The road closure is causing severe delays in the area, including on the A14 near Newmarket and other parts of west Suffolk. A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Constabulary said in a statement: “We were called at about 2am to reports of a collision involving a lorry and a motorbike on the A14 westbound between Junction 35 and 36 (Stow Cum Quy to Swaffham Bulbeck.

“The driver of the motorbike, a man, sadly passed away at the scene.
