POLICE targeted bikers in spot checks on the A39 in West Somerset during the weekend.

As sunshine and warm weather brought thousands of holiday makers onto the roads, officers of the Road Policing Unit stopped motorcyclists to press home road safety advice.

The spot checks come days after a man died in a motorcycle accident on the A39, a motor cyclist 'hot route', between Kilve and Holford.
