Police are appealing for witnesses following a road crash on the B9170, between Oldmeldrum and Methlick, Aberdeenshire, on Saturday, April 4

Around 3.10 pm this afternoon, a 23-year-old man was seriously injured when he came off his blue Suzuki SV650 on the B9170, between Meldrum House Hotel and Formartine's Café.

He was taken by ambulance to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary where medical staff describe his condition as serious but stable.

Constable Cameron Griffiths, North East Road Policing, said: "We have spoken to several witnesses who stopped at the scene, however, we are still keen to speak to anyone who witnessed it happen or saw the motorcycle in the area prior to the collision.

"If you were on the road between 3pm and 3.10 pm today and have dash-cam footage that may assist our enquiry, then please contact road policing officers at Inverurie Police Station via 101.

"Please quote reference number 2001 of 4 April, 2020 when calling."

The road is closed both ways and will be until further notice and local diversions are in place.
