Avon and Somerset Constabulary are appealing for witnesses after a man died following fatal road traffic collision near Portishead.

The man, who was a motorcyclist, was involved in a collision with a car carrying four children on the A369 Portbury Hundred, this morning (Sunday).

He sustained serious injuries and received treatment at the scene but died shortly afterwards.

The male driver of the car was taken to hospital and treated for minor injuries including a wrist injury and bruising.

Four children who were also in the car were not injured.

The road was blocked in both directions and remains closed to allow collision investigators to carry out a detailed examination of the scene.

The road is likely to remain closed until this evening and motorists are advised to seek alternative routes to avoid using the A369 between J19 of the M5 and the Wyndham Way roundabout.

A police spokesman said: "We would like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time of the collision who may have information to help our enquiries.

"We would particularly like to hear from anyone with dash cam footage of the incident."

Anyone able to help is asked to contact the police, quoting reference 5219248636
