Just after 4pm yesterday, 9 April, police responded to Seaview Road in East End, in the vicinity of no. 2289, where a motorcyclist had been lying in the road and was transported to hospital by ambulance.  It was understood that the motorcyclist had fallen off his bike while riding with a group of others, all of whom were possibly engaging in dangerous driving. The other motorcyclists had left by the time emergency personnel had arrived and it is believed that they also removed the victim’s motorbike.
