A 68-year-old motorcyclist remains in hospital with serious injuries following a crash involving five motorbikes and a car in Monmouthshire.

Three other bikers suffered fractures after the incident on Tuesday evening at Llangybi.

The alarm was raised at 19:20 BST after the collision with a red Citroen car near the Cwrt Bleddyn Hotel on the Usk to Caerleon road.

The most severely injured rider is in a stable condition at a Bristol hospital.

Gwent Police said they are appealing for any witnesses to the crash to come forward, after being forced to close Usk Road until the early hours of Wednesday morning, while an inquiry got underway.

"One of the motorcyclists, a 68-year-old man from Monmouth, was seriously injured and conveyed to Frenchay hospital by air ambulance which is where he currently remains in a stable condition," said Gwent Police in a statement.

Three of the other motorcyclists are in hospital with fractures.
