A motorcyclist was taken to hospital and a road shut after a crash in Stevenage last night.

Emergency services were called just before 5pm to North Road – near to Lister Hospital – after a blue Qingqi motorcycle and a yellow Honda Civic collided.

The biker – a man in his 20s – had slight injuries according to the police and was taken to the hospital for further treatment.

The road was closed by officers due to fuel being spilt, but reopened shortly after 6pm.
