Police closed the road for much of the day while investigation work was carried out at the scene.

Sgt Mark Baker, of Nottinghamshire Police's Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: "This was a tragic incident in which a young man lost his life far too soon. As with all road traffic collisions where people are killed or seriously injured we are working hard to understand exactly what happened.

“The victim's family are being supported by specially trained officers and our thoughts remain with them at this difficult time.”

Officers are particularly keen to hear from anyone who has any dashcam footage.

Anybody with information about the collision should contact 101 quoting, incident 147 of 26 June 2021.
