A motorcyclist died in a road accident in Leigh early this morning.

Shortly before 7.50am, police were called to Atherleigh Way and Twist Lane after the motorbike was involved in a collision with a HGV.

All three sections of the emergency services attended at the accident on the notorious roundabout and the motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene.

Leigh came to a virtual standstill as one of its busiest junctions was closed and motorists are being urged to avoid that area of the town with part of Atherleigh Road still closed following the accident.
