Police seek witness to fatal crash

POLICE are looking for a man who went to the aid of a Shoreham teenager who suffered fatal injuries in a motorbike collision.

Gary Attwater, of Gosport Court, Harbour Way, 18, died after coming off his bike, in Brighton Road, Lancing, on Friday.

Following an initial investigation, police have said are seeking another motorcyclist who may have stopped to assist Gary at the scene of the crash, which happened at about 4.25am.

PC Doug Park from Sussex Police’s Road Policing Unit said: “It is believed that after Mr Attwater came off his bike another motorcyclist stopped and helped him.

“The motorcyclist left the scene without leaving his details. We are really keen to trace him to help us with our investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Sussex Police, on 101, quoting Operation Cypress.
