Police have named a 21-year-old man who died after his motorcycle crashed into a tree in Crawley.

Will Stanton, from Shoreham, died at the scene on the A2220 Horsham Road on Sunday (September 13).

Paramedics and a doctor from the air ambulance were unable to save his life following the crash near the Breezehurst Drive roundabout at about 12.30pm.

Sussex Police has appealed for witnesses after the road was closed for almost four hours while emergency services were at the scene.

A spokesman said Mr Stanton was riding a white Yamaha 125cc east on the dual carriageway some 50 metres east of the roundabout.

His motorbike mounted the kerb on the central reservation and crashed into a tree.

Officers believed no other vehicles were involved.
