Police seek information after biker dies on Welsh trail

Substantial metal bar left on trail path causes fatal accident on Taff Trail

POLICE in Wales are appealing for information following the death of a motorcyclist after the rider collided with a large metal bar on the Taff Trail.

Jamie Roberts, 28, died in hospital three days after he suffered severe head injuries in the crash, near the Brecon Mountain Railway, on July 10.

The 55-mile route, which runs between the Cardiff waterfront at Cardiff Bay in the South and the Market Town of Brecon, is used by walkers, cyclists and horseriders.

The route's website forum - tafftrail.org.uk - contains many postings complaining about the illegal use of motorcycles on the trail.

Officers from South Wales Police are appealing for information who may know why the metal bar was put across the trail prior to the accident.
