A motorcyclist was taken to hospital after a crash with a lorry in Beckenham.

The crash occurred shortly before 1pm yesterday (November 1) in Upper Elmers End Road.

Police and London Ambulance Service attended and the male motorcycle rider was taken to a south London hospital.

His injuries have been described as not life-threatening.
