Eckington Road from Handley Road to Springwell Hill was closed for several hours while investigations were carried out.

A Derbyshire police spokesperson said: "Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

"We are keen to speak to anyone who saw the two vehicles, a grey Yamaha YZF-R6 motorbike and a black BMW 320, prior to the collision, especially anyone with dash cam footage.

"If you believe you have video that may help the investigation then it should be downloaded to an external device and secured for officers to view."
