One eyewitness, Oliver Jelley, was travelling through the village from his home in Market Harborough to his office in Brixworth.

He said: “There was plastic and metal all over the road. It looked really nasty. It looked as if the motorbike had gone into the side of the car.

A spokeswoman from Northamptonshire Police said the crash happened at 7.20am this morning and that the air ambulance was also called.

Officers from Northants and Leicestershire attended.
