A 51-year-old woman died just before 4pm this afternoon and a man was injured in an accident with their motorbike at the junction of the TF523 from Arafo and the TF24 La Esperanza road.  Emergency services say that they were called out with reports of the accident in which no other vehicles were involved, but that sadly, although a helicopter had been dispatched to assist, medical crew could not help the woman due to the severity of the injuries she sustained in the accident, and they could only confirm her death at the scene.
