Three ambulances, a rapid response vehicle and an air ambulance all attended but the teenager died at the scene.

The van driver, from Northampton, was taken to hospital with a broken foot.

Police are urging car drivers to be extra conscious of motorbikes and cyclists on the road during this period when bright light can make visibility difficult.
