A MAN has died after his motorcycle collided with a "waste disposal vehicle" in Camelon this morning.

The incident happened at around 7.25am on Glasgow Road, near to the Mariner Centre.

A male rider sustained serious injuries after his bike, which was travelling east, struck the vehicle travelling in the opposite direction.

Emergency services responded to the scene, where, despite the best efforts of the Scottish Ambulance Service, the 49-year-old was pronounced dead.

Inquiries into this collision are ongoing and anyone with information is asked to come forward.

Sergeant David Ross, from the road policing unit in Stirling, said: "This incident has tragically resulted in the motorcyclist sustaining injuries, which he could not recover from, and our sympathies are with his family at this time.

"We are working to establish the full circumstances surrounding the collision and any motorists who were on the road at the time and witnessed what happened, or who have any other relevant information, should contact police immediately.

"Similarly, if you believe you have any dash-cam footage that can assist with our inquiries, then please also get in touch."
