Police were contacted shortly before 1.20pm on Sunday to the A120 near the Phoenix Bridge.

A Mazda 6 estate towing a trailer was travelling along the Colchester-bound side when the trailer became detached and drifted across to the opposite carriageway.

It collided with a Ducati motorcycle, ridden by a man aged in his 60s and from the Sudbury area.

The motorcyclist suffered a head injury, which is described as life threatening. 

He was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.

The car driver, a man aged in his 40s from Manningtree, was not injured.
