An appeal has begun to find the occupants of an orange Clio – or possibly a Corsa- who sped off from the scene of an accident involving a motorcyclist and his passenger.

The collision happened at around 1.20pm yesterday between Sutton and Witcham Toll on the A142.

A witness said: “I witnessed the accident. The sickening part is the occupants of an orange Clio or could have been a Corsa fled the incident laughing as they sped off in the direction of Sutton/Chatteris.

“They left a motorcyclist and passenger badly injured needing the air ambulance.

“Please if you see a car matching this description hopefully with front end or side damage to contact the police on 101”.

Another driver reported that “we passed this heading towards Sutton. We couldn’t believe how far the bike was from where the guy was laying.

“Hope they check any CCTV through Sutton and flag up a plate. What is wrong with people?”
