A driver from Westham was injured in a crash last night (Thursday, July 30).

The 66-year-old sustained a cut to his head but did not require hospital treatment.

His car, a red Volvo 940, collided with an orange Honda CBR1000 motorcycle, which was being ridden by a 40-year-old man from St Leonards.

The accident happened at 9.55pm at the junction of the A259 Barnhorn Road with Green Lane, Bexhill.
