A CORONER has warned of the dangers of driving at speed after the death of a young motorcyclist.

Thomas Reeves, 24, was killed in a collision with a van at Lopcombe Corner near Stockbridge.

The experienced motorcyclist was travelling at 60mph on the A30 from Stockbridge to Salisbury on July 12 when he clipped the back of a tipper van turning into Hollom Down Road, the inquest heard.

Mr Reeves, of Trenchard Avenue, Winterbourne Gunner, near Salisbury, suffered severe head injuries after he lost control of his black Honda Fireblade.

Central Hampshire coroner Simon Burge concluded a verdict of accidental death.

He added: “It’s a warning to the motorcyclists to think very carefully before they take bikes out on to the road at speed.”
