A motorcyclist airlifted to hospital after suffering injuries in a road accident is “stable and talking”, police have said.

A man was airlifted to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge at around 3.25pm today after being involved in a collision with a car at an industrial site on the junction between Mile End and Hillside in Brandon.

The male rider of a Kawasaki motorbike suffered leg and back injuries, as well as internal injuries. He was involved in a collision with a Honda Civic.

A Suffolk Police spokesman initially described the injuries as “potentially life-threatening”.

But tonight the force has revealed he is “stable and talking” and is expected to undergo leg surgery tomorrow morning.
