Teenager seriously injured in motorbike crash in Sheering

A 17-year-old teenage boy was seriously injured in a motorbike crash.

He came off his multi-coloured bike and collided with a road sign in The Street, Sheering, at around 1.55pm on Saturday.

The rider, who is from Sheering, was airlifted to the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel with serious injuries but in a stable condition.

A spokesman for Essex Police said: "Any witnesses or anyone who saw a multi-coloured motorcycle being ridden around Sheering around the time of the crash should contact the investigating officer PC Ian Tappin at Chigwell on 101."

I've seen a few motorcyclists out today. I ride a motorbike, but there is no way I would ride my bike in these conditions.

The law should require kids to have the same amount of lessons for a motorbike as for a car.

I find it frightening that they can get on a bike after a half day training session and without any road experience.

Where do you stop? Bicycles next? I agree, people have to take some responsibility when they take themselves out even in cars when advice is to only make essential journeys.

The difference between a motor bike and a bicycle is the potential for exessive speed and the ability for an in experienced rider ro kill themselves and others.

Same with a bicycle, no difference. Pedestrians have been killed by people riding on pavements.
