A BIKER died after a crash at Scammonden.
The 41-year-old man from Oldham, was riding a black Honda motorcycle when it collided with a lamppost on New Hey Road, near the Jack O’Mitre pub, at about 4pm yesterday.
He was taken to Huddersfield Royal Infirmary but was pronounced dead shortly after arriving.
Relatives were called to the hospital to be told the news.
Police set up a road block on New Hey Road near its junction with Hey Lane, which remained in place well into the evening.
