A motorcyclist who collided with a car in Welling this morning is no longer in a life-threatening condition.

The man, believed to be in his 20s, suffered some broken bones and head injuries after the accident in Upper Wickham Lane and is still thought to be seriously injured.

He was taken to the Royal London Hospital by air ambulance after the 9am crash at the junction with Balliol Road.

A spokesman for the police said the road has now been reopened.

This morning, Upper Wickham Lane resident Chantel Staples, 31, told how she came across the scene when she was taking her daughter to school.

She said: “There are still three police cars, eight policemen and two ambulances here.

“I didn’t see it happen, but it looks very serious.”

The London Ambulance Service sent a single responder in a car and two ambulances in addition to the air ambulance.
