A Kent biker has died after apparently crashing into the central reservation on the A2.
The 42-year-old motorcyclist, from Sevenoaks, was pronounced dead at the scene following last night's accident on the Kent-bound carriageway of the A2 at Kidbrooke, south east London.
Officers were called to the scene, close to the Kidbrooke interchange, shortly before 5.30pm.
The biker is believed to have hit the central reservation - and it is not thought he made contact with any other vechicle beforehand.
London Ambulance Service and London's Air Ambulance attended but the man was declared dead at the scene. His family has been informed.
A post mortem and formal identification has yet to take place.
The A2 was closed in both directions following the accident.
Police are now appealing for information which may help their investigation.
The Metropolitan Police's Serious Collision Investigation Unit is leading inquiries into the incident and detectives are keen to speak with anyone who witnessed what happened.
