A MAN has fallen off his motorcycle whilst turning at a roundabout.

The red Honda motorbike was turning into Festival Leisure Park from Cranes Farm Road just after 7.10am on Friday when the rider fell, sustaining minor injuries.

An ambulance and two police cars were at the scene and the right-hand turning into the Festival Leisure Park heading towards Basiildon Town Centre was closed.

Vehicles wanting to turn right into Festival Leisure were forced to continue to the next roundabout.

The roadblock was still in place at 8am.

Looks like the line the bike was taking was too close to the island. Possibly hit some debris and then could not take their eyes off the curb.-classic.
