Police have confirmed the silver Honda motorcyclist – a woman in her 30s – was airlifted to hospital with serious injuries after a collision in Lonsdale Road at the junction with Webb Rise.

A silver Vauxhall Insignia was also involved in the incident, which occured at about 4.50pm and saw an air ambulance land on a grassy patch on the corner of Webb Rise.
