A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a woman lying next to her motorbike on a grass verge and a car with significant damage to its side.

“The woman, who is believed to be in her 30s, remained fully conscious throughout and was treated for a serious leg injury and cuts to her arm.

“She was given pain relief at the scene and carefully moved on to the awaiting air ambulance, which had landed in a nearby field, before being airlifted to Royal Stoke University Hospital.
