A MOTORCYCLIST who collided with a BMW received urgent treatment from paramedics at the roadside before being taken to hospital.

The biker, understood to be a teenager, went into the back of the BMW on Whitehill Way between Mead Way and Eastleaze Road at around 1.15pm today and the road was closed while he received treatment.

Police and ambulance services attended the scene and the road was reopened some time later.

The Wiltshire Air Ambulance was scrambled and landed but the biker was taken to Great Western Hospital by land instead.
