A BIKER had to be airlifted to hospital after a crash with a Land Rover near Henley.

Emergency services – including the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance – were called to the A4189 at Oldberrow around 3.15pm on Wednesday (September 7).

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When crews arrived at the junction, there was a Land Rover that had significant damage to its rear and a motorcycle with considerable damage.

“The rider – an 18-year-old – had suffered multiple injuries. The doctor from the air ambulance anaesthetised him at the scene before he was airlifted to University Hospital in Coventry.”

The man driving the LandRover was shaken but otherwise unhurt.
