A Kent Police spokesman said: "We would like to hear from anyone who saw the collision, or if you were waiting at the traffic lights before the collision took place, and in particular if you have any dashcam footage.

"Other motorcyclists are reported to have been in the area at the time and we ask that they come forward as they may have information which could help enquiries."
