Police are appealing for information after a motorcyclist was seriously injured in a collision on the outskirts of Flamstead.

The crash took place at around 3pm yesterday (Tuesday, June 12), at the roundabout junction with the A5 and Watery Lane.

The motorcyclist, a man in his 30s, was riding a white and blue Suzuki GSX R-1000 which was in a collision with a white Kia Sportage.

He suffered serious injuries, and the roundabout was closed to traffic to allow emergency services to attend to him.

Helimed air ambulance services arrived at the scene and the motorcyclist was transported to hospital, where he is in a critical but stable condition.

The driver of the Kia was uninjured, and police are unsure of the cause of the crash.

PC Jason Brownlie-Parker, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit, said: “This collision happened at a busy junction during the day so there would have been plenty of motorists in the area.

“Were you using the roundabout at around 3pm yesterday? Did you witness the collision, or its aftermath?

“Do you have a dash cam fitted to your vehicle? If so, we would be very keen to speak to you as you may have captured the events leading up to or following the collision. We are interested in recording any information you may have, however insignificant it seems. It could be the key to the investigation.”

Anyone with information can contact PC Brownlie-Parker on jason.brownlie-parker@herts.pnn.police.uk, call the non-emergency number 101 quoting ISR 499 of June 12, or report information online at https://www.herts.police.uk/Report.

One of my favourite summer activities as a child was pond-dipping. I was fortunate enough to grow up in a house with a fairly large pond in the garden and so my pond-dipping activities often extended over days and weren’t as much dipping as a thorough exploration of the life in the pond.
