Pictures from the scene showed a non-emergency ambulance that had appeared to have suffered a smashed back window in the collision, while a badly damaged moped-style bike was lying in the road a few yards away.

A witness saw the motorcyclist taken to hospital on a stretcher in what he described as a serious condition, although we have yet to receive an official update on the rider’s condition.
