A MOTORCYCLIST has been airlifted to a major trauma centre with serious injuries following a crash which closed the A438 for several hours last night.

An ambulance service spokesperson said paramedics and the Strensham air ambulance were called to reports of a crash involving a car and a motorcycle near the Tarrington Arms, Tarrington, at 3.55pm.

A female motorcyclist aged 21 had been thrown from her bike, which was found in a nearby field, and the car had significant damage to the driver's door.

The motorcyclist had suffered multiple serious injuries and medics administered advanced trauma care at the scene before she was airlifted to Bristol's Frenchay Hospital.

She is now in a stable condition.
