A LOCAL man has been killed after a motorvehicle crash on a road at East Kirkby, near Spilsby.

The emergency services were called to the A155, Main Road at East Kirkby at around 5.40pm on Saturday after a grey Jaguar car and a red Ducati 1000cc collided.

The rider of the motor cycle, a 53-year-old old local man, was later pronounced dead at the scene. Police do not expect to name the victim until later today (Monday).

The driver of the Jaguar, a 56-year-old man from Cambridge, was initially arrested under charges of causing death by careless driving. He was later released on police bail pending further enquiries.
