A motorcyclist remains in a critical condition in hospital after colliding with a fence late last night (Thursday).

The East Anglian Air Ambulance joined paramedics at Lisle Lane shortly before 11.30pm after reports that a motorcyclist, a 32-year-old man, had careered into a metal fence.

A rapid response team from Magpas was also on scene.

A spokesman for Magpas said: “The Magpas team anaesthetised a man who suffered head and chest injuries.

“After providing crucial A&E level care for the patient at the scene, the Helimedix then accompanied the patient to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in a land ambulance.”

The man, who was riding a blue Piaggio 125cc motorcycle, remains in a critical condition.

Sergeant Gordon Murray, of Cambridgeshire police, said: “We are keen to speak to anyone who saw the collision or the motorcycle prior to it.”
