(ADW) A Dutch motorbike rider was tragically killed on Sunday afternoon when he crashed head-on into a rock face.

The rider was travelling around Luxembourg with two other Dutch companions and was on the route between Wiltz and Büderscheid at about 3pm when the accident occurred.

The first rider in the group was negotiating a long right-hand bend when he lost control of his bike and crashed into a rock face at the side of the road.

Although emergency services quickly arrived, the man died at the scene.
