The rider, a man in his 30s from the Wigton area, died at the scene on the A6 at Calthwaite next to Bulls Head Farm.

Police believe he lost control of his Suzuki GSXR machine on the brow of a hill and collided with the wall at about 5.20pm yesterday.

The road was closed for about five hours so that Cumbria police's roads policing unit and collision investigation unit could examine the scene.

Anyone who saw the collision or the bike before the crash should call the roads unit on 101 quoting reference number 233 March 4.
