A BIKER critically injured in a motorcycle crash in Brazil has died.

Christopher Peck, 34, of Workington, who was critically injured in the crash on April 20, died yesterday with his mother Sylvia and brother Sean at his bedside.

Mr Peck had to have his leg amputated at the scene, suffered multiple other injuries and was left in a coma after his bike was hit head-on by a driver who had been drinking.

A crowdfunding appeal had raised about £60,000 towards the cost of flying him to a UK hospital, after problems with his insurance.
