A teenager remains in a critical condition after coming off his motorcycle in St Neots.

A teenager who was rushed to hospital following an incident in St Neots on Friday (April 24) remains in a critical condition.

16-year-old Connor Calahane-Toon, of Princess Drive, St Neots, was riding his motorcycle in woodland in St Neots at about 5.30pm when the incident happened.

Between Howitts Lane and Howitts Gardens, near to the railway bridge, a length of rope which was tied between two trees caused him to come off his bike, causing serious injuries to his neck and wind pipe.

He was rushed to Addenbrooke's Hospital and put in a medically induced coma to enable him to recover from his injuries. He is expected to remain in the coma until at least the beginning of next week.

Detective Constable Tom Nuttall said: "Connor is still in a very serious way and I am determined to get to the bottom of what happened in that woods on Friday. I would like to speak with anyone who may know why the rope was tied to those trees, or who may have put it there.

"We know there were a lot of people in the local area at the time and I'm asking any parents who know their children were out in the area to contact police. Any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, could assist with our investigation."

Anyone with information should contact DC Nuttall on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
