A MOTORCYCLIST has been airlifted to hospital after crashing his bike on the A329M this morning.

Police and ambulance services were called to the northbound carriageway between Bracknell and the junction with the M4 at 7.32am after the rider's bike left the carriageway.

The road was temporarily closed while the Thames Valley Air Ambulance landed in a nearby field and airlifted the man to Oxford's John Radcliffe Hospital, where he will be treated for leg injuries.

The road has since re-opened.
