Appeal for witnesses after man found in ditch with serious injuries

Police are appealing for witnesses after finding a man with serious injuries beside a road near Cirencester.

Offices believe he was the victim of a collision near South Cerney on Saturday night (September 21).

The Ambulance Service was called to Northmoor Lane near South Cerney just before 1pm.

Northmoor Lane is an unclassified road running adjacent to the old airfield and the 29 Regiment RLC barracks and camp on the outskirts of Cirencester.

Officers attended and found a man with head, facial and other serious injuries along with his motorcycle lying in a partially water filled ditch.

The man, aged in his 50s and from the South Cerney area, was initially taken to the Great Western Hospital in Swindon before being transferred to Southmead Hospital in Bristol.

The man's next of kin have been informed and he remains in a serious but stable condition at this time.

Specialist collision investigators from Gloucestershire Constabulary and Wiltshire Police attended the scene and conducted a forensic examination.

Officers investigating the collision would like to hear from anyone who travelled along Northmoor Lane between 9pm and 11pm last night and who may have seen a motorcycle or the man lying beside the road.

Witnesses are being asked to call 101 quoting incident 528 of September 21.
