A motorcyclist has escaped with minor injuries following a collision in Nelson tonight.

Emergency services were called to Netherfield Road at 6pm after a crash between a Yamaha motorcycle and a blue Citroen C3.

Police could not confirm whether there were any passengers in the car, although they did say nobody has been seriously injured.

A spokesman said: “We thought it was serious at first, as initial reports from the ambulance said he had come off his bike in the middle of the road and was not moving.

“Traffic officers got there at rapid speed, and the injuries are very minor.”

The road was closed while the car was moved.
