A motorcyclist was seriously hurt in a road accident near Wellingborough.

Medics from the Magpas air ambulance service landed in fields south of the town at about 6.30pm yesterday (Thursday, May 4) to treat a man who had been injured in a motorcycle accident.

A Northamptonshire Police spokesman said officers were called just after 5pm to Hardwater Road, where the motorbike had left the road for reasons unknown and ended up in a ditch.

Magpas doctor Vijayasankar and paramedic Alex Pearce assessed the patient, in his 20s, who had suffered multiple injuries including a serious one to his leg.

The team sedated the man at the scene, which allowed them to splint the injury before they accompanied him to University Hospital Coventry via land ambulance.

The patient was in a very serious but stable condition upon arrival.

An EMAS paramedic crew was also in attendance.
