A motorcyclist has suffered a broken shoulder following a crash on the A131 at High Garrett.

He had been riding a red Yamaha motorcycle at the time of the crash, which was about 2pm today.

No other vehicles are believed to have been involved.

The road was closed for a short while, causing long tailbacks, and the motorcyclist was taken to hospital.

The crash is said to have happened between the Thistley Green Roundabout and Lyons Hall Road/Church Street junction.
