Detectives in Dorset are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a car and a motorbike collided in Poole on Friday night.
The biker, an 18-year-old local man, was taken to Poole Hospital with potentially life threatening injuries. His Suzuki motorcycle and a Mitsubishi Colt being driven by a 67-year-old local woman collided at the junction of Wallisdown Road and Canford Road at about 10.15pm on Friday 5th August. The road was closed for some time to allow for forensic investigations by the police.
The motorcyclist's injuries have stabilised, but he has been left with injuries the police describe as potentially life-changing.
"I am appealing to anyone who saw the collision or the manner of driving of either vehicle prior to the incident to contact Dorset Police.
"I believe there may have been a large group of people near to the Subway restaurant on Wallisdown Road before and at the time of the collision and I would like to speak to any of these people who haven’t already been spoken to by officers."
Anyone with information can contact Dorset Police via an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephoning 101 and quoting incident number 4:561.
Alternatively any witnesses can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 or via theCrimestoppers website.
It's believed two young sisters escaped serious injury after finding almost one hundred nails hidden in the sand at a beach in Canford Cliffs in Poole.
The council says its beaches are regularly inspected. And they hadn't received any reports of nails. The girls' father said it could've been dangerous.
“Poole’s beaches are regularly raked and inspected. No reports of this nature were received over the weekend, but we would urge anyone who finds potentially dangerous items on the beach to report this to the nearest beach office or warden so that it can be addressed straight away, and other wardens along our coastline can be made aware of any issue.”
