A first aider who helped a motorcyclist following a crash in St Albans has been found following a Herts Advertiser appeal.

Herts Police had asked the man, believed to be an off-duty fireman, to get in touch.

At around 5.30pm on Wednesday, August 30 a white Honda motorbike collided with a grey BMW car at the junction of Acrewood Way and Hatfield Road.

The motorcyclist died at the scene, and was identified locally as Darren Thompson,a 36-year-old father-of-three, who worked nearby.

PC Jackie Lister said yesterday: “We know a man gave first aid to the motorcyclist at the scene, but despite extensive police enquiries we have been unable to identify him.

“The man may have information that could assist our enquiries establishing the exact circumstances surrounding the collision.”
