A TADLEY motorcyclist has been airlifted to hospital with life-threatening injuries, following a Silchester collision this morning (Friday).

Hampshire Constabulary were called to the collision at 7.09am, in Bramley Lane, between the junctions of Byes Lane and Holly Lane, involving a motorcycle and tractor.

The motorcyclist, a 20 year-old man from Tadley, riding a black Yamaha, was airlifted to Southampton General Hospital, with life threatening injuries, where he remained in a critical condition, with his family by his side this evening.

Investigating officer, Sgt Paul White said:"We would like to speak to anyone who saw either the tractor or motorcyclist prior to, or at the time of the accident.

We believe that a white van, which wasn't involved, passed the tractor a short while before the incident. If you are that driver please contact us as you may have important information."

South Central Ambulance Services (SCAS) were called at 7.04am and sent an ambulance crew and the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance to the scene.

Bramley Road was closed during the incident, between the junctions of Byes Lane and Holly Lane.

Witnesses are asked to contact the Roads Policing Unit at Whitchurch on the non emergency telephone number 101 quoting the reference number 44150341913.
