A man died in a collision near Birdlip this afternoon.

The incident happened shortly after 3.15pm today (Saturday 26 November) on the B4070 between the Foston's Ash pub and Birdlip village, close to the entrance of Ebworth estate and woods.

A silver Vauxhall Vivaro van travelling towards Birdlip left the road and crashed through a wall before coming to rest in the field next to the road.

A 37-year-old man from Gloucester who was driving the van was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.

His next of kin have been informed and are receiving support from a family liaison officer.

Officers would like to speak to anyone who hasn't yet come forward who may have seen the collision or the van shortly before the collision. Anyone who may have relevant in-car video footage is also urged to come forward.

If you can help call 101 and quote incident 265 of 26 November.
