A MO­TOR­CY­CLIST who died fol­low­ing a col­li­sion with a car on a coun­try road near Croft has been named as Alexan­der John Bogges.

Mr Bogges’s iden­tity was re­vealed last week at the open­ing of an in­quest into his death at Le­ices­ter Coroner’s Court, at the Town Hall.

The 44-year-old, of Church Nook, in Wigston, was rid­ing a red Honda mo­tor­bike that was in­volved in a crash with a white Mazda CX5 on Fri­day, Au­gust 17.

It hap­pened in Stan­ton Lane, Pot­ters Marston, be­tween Stoney Stan­ton and Croft, at 8.23am.

No pre­cise de­tails of the cir­cum­stances of the col­li­sion were re­vealed by Ly­dia Brown, as­sis­tant coroner for Le­ices­ter City and South Le­ices­ter­shire.

How­ever, she said that emer­gency ser­vices, in­clud­ing East Mid­lands Am­bu­lance Ser­vice, were called to the scene, adding that mar­ried Mr Bogges was pro­nounced dead by a doc­tor at 8.43am.

Mrs Brown said that a post mortem ex­am­i­na­tion was car­ried out at Le­ices­ter Royal In­fir­mary.

How­ever, pathol­o­gist Pro­fes­sor Guy Rutty was un­able to give a cause of death.

She said that in­quiries by crash in­ves­ti­ga­tors with Le­ices­ter­shire Po­lice are con­tin­u­ing and a file is be­ing put together for the coroner.

Mrs Brown ad­journed the in­quest un­til Jan­uary.

She added: “I would like to of­fer my sin­cere con­do­lences to the fam­ily for their loss.”

A Le­ices­ter­shire Po­lice spokes­woman pre­vi­ously said that the driver of the Mazda was un­hurt in the in­ci­dent.

Crash in­ves­ti­ga­tors were ap­peal­ing for any­one who wit­nessed the crash, or mo­torists with dash cam footage of it, to get in touch.

De­tec­tive Con­sta­ble John Bor­lase said: “At the time of the col­li­sion, the Mazda was trav­el­ling to­wards Hun­cote while the mo­tor­bike was trav­el­ling to­wards Stoney Stan­ton.

“I am keen to speak to any­one who may wit­nessed the col­li­sion or ei­ther ve­hi­cle be­fore­hand, to please get in touch.

“Al­ter­na­tively any­one who may have cap­tured the in­ci­dent on dashcam footage is also asked to con­tact us.”

Stan­ton Lane is close to Croft and trav­els through Pot­ters Marston. It is used by traf­fic trav­el­ling be­tween Stoney Stan­ton and Hun­cote.
