A QUAD biker rider who died when the vehicle he was riding collided with a tree has been named by police this afternoon.

Nathan John Robinson, 22, from Dunscroft, was pronounced dead in hospital after suffering serious head injuries in the crash.

The bike Mr Robinson was riding had been stolen in Haxey, police said. His family were too upset to speak.
