AN appeal has been made for witnesses after a motorcyclist was injured in a crash in Burnley last night.

Police say the ride was in collision with a Peugeot 308 car near to the junction of Colne Road and Bright Street just after 9pm.

A Lancashire Police spokesman said: "The rider of the motorcycle, a 29-year-old man from Burnley, suffered head and abdominal injuries.

"He was taken to Royal Preston Hospital where his condition is described as stable."

No arrests have been made and police have issued a plea to members of the public, who may have uploaded videos of the smash to social media, to remove the clips as they may hamper any further police investigation.

Police have instead appealed for anyone with footage of the collision, or any other details concerning the incident, to contact them on 101, quoting log number 1560 of January 10.
