A 31 year old male motorcyclist has died in hospital following a collision in Antrim on Saturday.

According to the PSNI, the motorcycle he was riding struck a telegraph pole at around 6.20pm on Saturday 19 March on the Glenariffe Road, Glenariff.

Inspector Colin Shaw appealed for witnesses to come forward: “We are keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision, or anyone who may have seen a pair of motorcyclists travelling in the direction of Ballymena prior to the time of the collision.

The male, who sadly passed away, was travelling with a friend who was riding a second motorcycle. The second male was not involved in the collision.”
