A TEENAGER has died following a collision in Rossendale.

Police were called by the Ambulance Service at just after 7pm on Wednesday to Goodshaw Fold Road, Loveclough, to reports 17-year-old Owen Jones had fallen off a Sur-Ron LBX electric motorbike and suffered a serious head injury.

Owen, from Crawshawbooth, was taken to hospital but sadly died yesterday afternoon (Thursday). Our thoughts are with his family at this time. They are being supported by specially trained officers.

No other vehicles were involved in the collision.

Sgt Michael Higginson, of the Road Policing Unit, said: “A teenage boy has very sadly lost his life in what appear to be tragic circumstances. My thoughts are with his loved ones at this time.

“We are now working to establish the full circumstances of what led to the collision and I would ask anybody with information, CCTV or dashcam or mobile phone footage which could assist our enquiries to contact police as soon as possible.”
