Police are appealing for witnesses to a collision in Polegate that left a motorcyclist seriously ill in hospital.

A red Renault Megane and a Honda motorcycle collided outside the Tesco Express petrol station in Eastbourne Road at 5.40pm on February 7, police said.

The 67-year-old motorcyclist, from Polegate, was taken to Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton where he is being treated for fractures to his hip and leg and a bruising to his brain, police said.

Police said the 63-year-old Renault driver, also from Polegate, was not hurt.

PC Michael Dunn said many people would have seen what happened, and is appealing for them to come forward.

He said: “The collision happened during heavy rush hour traffic so a lot of people will have seen what happened.

“Please contact us to tell us what you saw, no matter how small the piece of information you might have is.”
