A BIKER was flown to hospital in critical condition after a crash this morning.

The man in his 30s was riding on the slip road for the A130 near to Wickford when he came off his bike.

He has since been airlifted to hospital in a very serious condition after the incident at around 9am today, Tuesday 3 September.

The closure on the A130 has been lifted, but the slip road closure remains.

Drivers trying to use Rettendon Turnpike towards South Woodham Ferrers will need to use the old A130.
