A motorcyclist has died following a collision on the M6 in Warwickshire this afternoon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the southbound carriageway of the M6 between junctions 1 and 2 near Rugby shortly before 1.00pm (Wednesday). Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer, a community paramedic and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance with a doctor on board attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Emergency services arrived to find a collision involving a motorcyclist. Upon assessment by ambulance staff the motorcyclist, a man, was found to be in cardiac arrest. The team of ambulance staff immediately commenced advanced life support on scene and continued resuscitation efforts in the land ambulance en route to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.

“Sadly, despite the best efforts of ambulance staff and hospital medics, nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead in hospital.”
