Police are searching for witnesses of a road traffic crash in Dagenham that left a biker with serious leg injuries.

Officers were called to the A13 eastbound junction with Thames Avenue at 11.18pm on Saturday.

Met Police and London Ambulance Service attended and found a male motorcyclist injured after reportedly colliding with a car.

The 27-year-old was taken to an east London hospital for assessment and treatment. His injuries are not believed to be life threatening, according to Scotland Yard.

The driver of the car stopped at the scene of the crash and is helping police with their enquiries. No arrests have been made.

Officers launched an appeal on Sunday to trace a second car said to have been near the motorbike when the crash took place.

They ask the driver of the vehicle or any witnesses to call the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 020 8597 4874.
