The collision took place in St Stephens Road, near to the old hospital, between a VW Polo, Vauxhall Insignia and a motorbike.

Police were called to the incident at 8.43am.

Daniel Roundtree and Chris McCarthy were passengers in the Vauxhall Insignia which was at a standstill when the motorcyclist hit the car.

The men were on their way to work at Chapelfield and assisted police with traffic control.

Mr Roundtree said: "We were at a standstill, not moving and its hit our car.

"If we weren't there he might have gone into a bus.

"I cannot tell if I'm shaken or cold."

Mr McCarthy said: "It's a bit of a manic Monday."

The East of England Ambulance Service were also called to the scene with reports of minor injuries.

No one is believed to have been seriously injured.

An ambulance left the scene shortly after 9.30am.

An eyewitness said: "I came out of my house and there was an ambulance in the middle of the road and someone in a high vis vest stopping and diverting traffic.

"As I walked past I saw someone lying in the road covered with a blanket with a few people sitting in the road comforting them while the paramedics came out of the ambulance.

"There was a bike lying a bit further up in the road and I though the person in the road probably came off that.

"It's a busy road and I hope they are okay."
