A man remains in hospital following a collision between a motorcyclist and a pedestrian in Downham this week.

Bromley police today (July 30) said the victim, believed to be in his 40s, was taken to a south London hospital in a serious condition. His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

Officers were called to the scene in Bromley Road at around 9.40pm on Monday and investigations into the circumstances are now ongoing.

London Ambulance Service personnel were joined by a doctor from London's Air Ambulance.

The accident saw the area between Downham Way and Beckenham Hill closed for much of the evening, on a busy night for the emergency services.

Just hours later a building fire caused the A21 stretch to be shut for a second time, with 21 firefighters tackling a blaze at a launderette.

Has Downham just been discovered? It seems very news worthy at the moment.
