A MOTORCYCLIST was airlifted to hospital following a three vehicle collision on the outskirts of Llandegla on Tuesday evening.

The incident happened on the A5104 at about 7pm. The road was partially closed while the air ambulance landed in a nearby field.

Despite being airlifted to Shrewsbury hospital, the biker's injuries were not as serious as first suspected, and the road was soon cleared.

PC Thomas Hough said North Wales Police's enquiries are ongoing and thanked Denbighshire Rural and West Conwy Coastal Police for their assistance.
