On Saturday, May 31, at about 4.50pm, my son was riding his motorbike to work when he was involved in a road traffic accident on the North Seaton roundabout.
He was in collision with a car and thrown from his motorcycle and landed on the central reservation.
May I take this opportunity of thanking all the road users who stopped and went to his assistance, and in particular an off-duty female doctor who I believe attended to him at the scene.
May we also thank the paramedics and staff at Wansbeck General Hospital A&E, who did a terrific job.
My son is bruised and sore, but could have been a lot worse. He was released from hospital and is recovering at home.
He was not able to thank anyone at the scene, so a big thank you to all the good samaritans involved.
Mrs S Beattie
