A 33-year-old police motorcyclist has died after hitting a heavy goods lorry in Bolton.
Allan Shaw was taking part in a training exercise when he crashed at Crompton Way, Astley Bridge, on Wednesday morning.

A police spokeswoman said the traffic officer, who was on duty, died at the scene and no one else was hurt.

An investigation into the cause of the crash is ongoing. Roads closed after the incident have now been reopened.

A sad event, condolences to all his family and friends.

Tough news and very sad for all friends, relations and colleagues, and of course all bikers. Keep the blues and two’s flashing…

When someone who works for other people is lost we all lose.

Dedication and a sense of duty to society are sorely lacking and the loss of Allan affects all of us in a smal yet important way. Our thoughts are with his friends, family and the colleagues who continue to look out for us in the face of all the petty anger and dangerous idiocy of those that don’t repsect the laws that Allan upheld for us.

Your loss is our loss. RIP.

My condolences to the family and friends. We give value to your work Allan, keep looking after us over there please

To his family, my sincere condolences. Nothing will replace your loss, but time will help to heal.

To his colleagues, we may all complain about you when you catch us speeding etc, but we do appreciate the difficult job you do. Thoughts go out to you all.

The job you did, and the job your colleagues continue to do is so important and so thankless… never confuse our complaining for lack of respect.

Your loss is deeply felt.
