Ipswich Witches reserve Danyon Hume has suffered a broken arm in three places and has also dislocated his elbow after a crash at last night’s British U21 Final at Poole.

The 20-year-old fell in his first ride after his engine seized up leaving the youngster helpless with Josh Bailey also involved in the heavy fall.

Hume was attended to by medics on track before being taken to hospital by ambulance.

It was later confirmed that Hume had suffered a broken arm in three places whilst also dislocating his elbow. The youngster will have an operation this morning.

The injury is another setback for the Witches after losing Nico Covatti to a broken wrist last week at Redcar.
