Shortly after 7:40am North Wales Police and other emergency services responded to reports of a road traffic collision on the B5109 at the Trefor crossroads near Holyhead, involving a silver Ford Transit van and a pedal cycle. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Investigating Officer, Temporary Sergeant Trystan Bevan said: “Our enquiries into this collision are ongoing and we are keen to trace the motorcyclist, who was travelling from the crossroads towards the general direction of Holyhead sometime between 7am and 8am. I would urge the motorcyclist, if they see this appeal, to come forward as they may have information that could assist our investigation. Similarly, if anyone has any further information about the collision and has not yet spoken to us, please do get in touch.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The road re-opened shortly after 2pm. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
