A motorcyclist has been injured in Manor Park this morning after an accident involving a car.

The police and ambulance services were called to Romford Road at its junction with Meanley Road just after 9am to attend to a man suffering with neck injuries.

Lee-Ann Richards, of Forest Gate, saw the incident while travelling on a number 86 bus into work.

She said: “It looked terrible. There were at least 30 people just standing around watching.

“Everyone just seemed to be in shock. I saw the man, the motorcyclist, lying on the ground on his back looking absolutely distraught.”

Paramedics are still attending to the victim at the scene.
