A main road through the Fens was closed for most of the evening and well into the night following a collision involving a car and a motorbike.

The A141 Isle Of Ely Way in March was closed with traffic halted in both directions between Peas Hill Roundabout and the B1101 Wimblington Road junction, because of an accident involving a car and a motorbike.

At one stage vehicles were backed up in one direction to Westry and to Wimblington in the other direction.

The collision involved a motorbike and what is thought to have been a jeep.

The male motorcyclist suffered a serious break to a leg and other injuries and was flown by Magpas to hospital. An eye witness said the man was “conscious and breathing and chatting away at the scene”.
