A motorcyclist has been injured when he was hit by a flying swan and thrown from his bike.

The man broke his collar bone after the low-flying bird careered into him on the road.

Emergency services attended and he was taken to hospital for treatment.

The incident happened at 11.45am at Crossway Green in Stourport-on-Severn, Worcestershire.

A West Midlands Ambulance spokeswoman said: "On arrival, scene crews found a man who had reportedly fallen from his motorbike when a swan flew across the carriageway and into him.

"The man was treated on scene for a fractured collar bone. He was immobilised using a spinal board and neck collar before being conveyed to Worcester Royal Hospital for further assessment and treatment."
