"We took over and worked through the full resuscitation protocol but eventually we could do no more and the doctor pronounced the man dead at the scene.

"There was a family from the Great Yeldham area in the Range Rover. They were all extremely shaken by what had happened."

A nine-year-old girl, who was on the rear nearside seat, was the only occupant to be injured. She received minor cuts and bruising to her face, left hand and left leg from the glass in the door which broke on impact.

She was taken to Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford, with her mother for treatment.

Mr Price added: "We would pay tribute to the members of the public. They gave the motorcyclist the best chance of survival."
