Two people have died following a collision between two motorbikes in Gailey, Staffordshire this morning.

The incident occurred on the A5 towards Telford, approximately one mile from Gailey Island, shortly after 10am and West Midlands Ambulance Service sent an ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and a community first responder to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find two motorbikes that had been in collision.

“Unfortunately, it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save either of the two motorcyclists, both men, and they were confirmed dead at the scene.

“A third patient, a woman who was in a van nearby and witnessed the incident, was treated for symptoms of shock, before being discharged at the scene.

“The incident resulted in the closure of the road and it is expected to remain closed for some time.”
