"We are also keen to speak with any other drivers, particularly any other motorcyclists, who were travelling Eastbound around this time, and may have witnessed the collision or stopped at the scene.

If this is you, or you know someone who was travelling along this section of the M65 around the time of the collision, please get in contact. "I know a lot of you will have been spoken to at the scene, but if you have any information that can assist our enquiries, please do contact us. "Finally, I want to thank you for your patience whilst the motorway was closed for a few hours yesterday, as the man was taken to hospital, and we carried out our enquiries.

"We know that this may have caused concern for some of you, and that there has been some speculation online regarding the collision.

We'd continue to ask you to refrain from speculation on social media, but if you do have any information that could assist our enquiries, please contact us through the appropriate channels."

Anyone with information or dashcam footage can phone 101, quoting log 0898 of May 5, 2024, or email [email protected][2].
