At around 10.20am on Sunday, September 10, there was a collision at the junction with Heyford Lane, opposite the Narrow Boat Inn, in Stowehill, just outside Weedon Bec.
It involved the drivers of a grey Peugeot 207 and a blue BMW 520D, and the rider of a black Suzuki GSF 600 K4 motorcycle.
Sadly the rider of the Suzuki, a man in his 20s, died at the scene. His next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.
Floral tributes were left at the scene of the crash last night. This newspaper is choosing not to reveal the man’s name at this time.
Police closed the entire stretch of A5 in both directions for around nine hours yesterday.
Officers are appealing for anyone who saw the collision, or who has information about it, including dash-cam or CCTV of any of the vehicles involved, to get in touch if they have not already done so.
Anyone with information about the collision is asked to email CollisionAppeals@northants.police.uk or call the Drivewatch Hotline on 0800 174615, or Northamptonshire Police on 101.
