Kirkdale is closed between Dartmouth Road and Sydenham Park, and is likely to be so for some time, I heard from a policeman. No buses. Motorcyclist fatally (I heard) injured at Kirkdale/Wells Park Road junction.

Someone who lives nearby has now told me it was a serious injury rather than a fatality.

Rode past on my bike. Looks like a van was turning up Wells Park Road and hit a moped. Looked a very big collision.

Not fatal, but possibly "life changing". The bike was in pieces apparently and can be seen in this report
