A motorcyclist involved in a collision with a tractor needed advanced trauma care by ambulance staff this morning in Staffordshire.
The incident happened on the B5027 in Bramshall, Uttoxeter at around 10.15am this morning (Thursday). An ambulance, a community paramedic, a MERIT trauma doctor and two Midlands Air Ambulances were sent to the scene.
