A motorcyclist was taken to hospital after a car deliberately hit him on the A406 by Redbridge Roundabout.

Police are appealing for information after a 20-year-old man was struck on the North Circular southbound carriageway at around 6.30pm on Tuesday, September 14.

The car involved has been described as a silver Ford Fiesta, which struck him from behind before driving off.

He was taken to hospital but his condition is not life threatening.

PC Martin Bly from the Roads and Transport Policing Command said: “Our initial investigation suggests that the car was being driven erratically and then appeared to strike the motorcycle deliberately.

“I would ask anyone who was in the area and saw this incident, or recorded the events leading up to the collision on dashcam footage, to contact police immediately.”

No one has been arrested and enquiries are ongoing.

Anyone with information that could assist police is asked to call 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote CAD6016/14Sep.
