A motorcyclist was taken to hospital after a crash between a car and a motorbike on Preston Road. 

The road was blocked after a Gilera Runner motorbike was involved in an accident with a black Peugeot 206 this morning.

A man, who was riding the motorbike, was taken to hospital with minor injuries including cuts to his legs. 

Police and ambulance crews attended. 

A spokesperson for South West Ambulance Service said they received a call at 8.19am to reports of an RTC involving a car and a motorbike.

"We attended with one ambulance and there was one male patient, on the bike with minor injuries. The patient was taken to Dorset County Hospital for treatment," they said.
