A man was left in a “life-threatening condition” after coming off his motorcycle in Sutton Gault.

The incident happened at about 2.30pm on Monday, with the motorcyclist, understood to be a man in his 30s, collided with a tree and careered into a ditch, near Bury Lane.

A spokesman for the East Anglia Air Ambulance said that the man may have lay severely injured in the ditch for almost 90 minutes before he was discovered by walkers and emergency services were called.

The spokesman added: The air ambulance team worked closely with the road ambulance crew and the police at the scene to recover the man from a ditch.

“The patient was treated by Dr Peter Temesvari and critical care paramedic Jemma Varela before they escorted him to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in the road ambulance.

“He is said to be in a life threatening condition.”
