A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The crash happened on what is effectively a slip road onto the northbound A38.

“When crews arrived they found a car with severe damage on the driver’s side.  Members of the public were carrying out resuscitation on the motorcyclist.

“Ambulance staff immediately took over and performed advanced life support but sadly the man’s injuries were too severe and it was not possible to save him; he was confirmed dead at the scene.
