Crash kills UK writer

A leading British motorcycle journalist died late last week in an accident during the press launch of a new bike in South Africa.

Kevin Ash was killed while testing BMW's R1200GS in the rugged landscape around the town of George,300km east of Cape Town.

The father-of-three wrote for a number of motor publications and was the Daily Telegraph's motorcycling correspondent for 15 years.
